Looks like I am disease free!!

Well, no deaths in 9 days! Everyone is good and I am ready to get some more fish. I think it's cured 100%. I used salt, melafix, and pimafix. Surprisingly, the neons stayed healthy the whole time. The guppie that didn't die got very shy and stayed hidden all the time and didn't eat. I notice now he's comming out and swimming around and eating. So happy.

A small clear plastic tub and a cheap filter and also a small heater would make suitable quarantine tank and help keep your main tank disease free while restocking it .
Really is Russian Roulette when purchasing fish and placing them in ones tank without quarantine,not to mention it is much easier and loads cheaper to treat small tank with meds if needed. Water changes are way easier and much less medication is needed. Been burned more than a few times and lost numerous fish by not doing something so easy. Just my two cents.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
