A very experienced fish keeper told me, when I asked the same question as you, you don't stock it until you need it, due to expiration dates. I'm looking at my packets of Furan-2. I only had to use 1/2 the box the last time I had to use this particular medication. The packets expire 7/2011, which is right around the corner. Knock wood I won't have to use it and will be able to pitch them out, and when I do that will feel like a waste of money.
Chances are you already have on hand the meds Lupes is recommending since you were keeping Discus. You probably also have alot of Metronidazole left over, which I know you're not going to need, lol.
Until I kept Discus my medicine shelf was empty as could be.
Keeping my shelf empty was easy because if I needed the meds they were easily obtainable in a day. If I lived in "the sticks" or on an island I'd probably stock pile.
