| || | I can't speak for the rest but the following meds are vital even if they're not for emergency cases and often are available only in livestock stores, etc. And some meds are restricted in some countries per the laws unless used properly. Organophosphates (masoten, neguvon, dylox, trichlorfon) Anchorworms, ergasilus, fish lice, fish leech, gill flukes, skin flukes Praziquantel Skin and gill flukes Maracyn and Maracyn2, Furan, Acriflavine Aeromonas and Pseudomonas (all bacterial infections such as columnaris and hemorrhagic septicemia) Levamisole hydrochloride (not base levamisole), Fenbendazole, Flubendazole Camallanus infestations and other internal parasites Clove Oil As anesthetic for surgeries I might add that the use of salt be clarified because many people believe in this junk aquarium salt that can be substituted by the cheaper alternative table salt. They do not need this along with Melafix and Pimafix, both of which can be substituted again by clean water. I use salt only for ich cases, nothing else. If ich cases are persistent, resort to formalin or malachite green. For scaleless fish, dose malachite green by half and with all ich treatments, treatment should stick for 14 days as minimum to eliminate all protozoans. And then formalin depletes oxygen so this must be addressed with vigorous aeration. And as a side note, fungal infections rarely happen. If they do, use Maroxy or Jungle Fungus Clear. Applying mercurochrome on the fungal wound also helps but fungal infections rarely happens anyway and often mistaken for bacterial infection.
