what kind of medications??

Placing an online order and thought it would be a good idea to pick up some meds in case I ever need it. Lost one of my fish to dropsy and want to be ready next time something sets in. So my question is, there are many meds out there that claim to handle various diseases. Which ones would be good to pick up?? I was leaning towards seachem paraguard and pimafix and melafix by api. Or is there something else out there that's better?

Skip the fixes - go with real medications.

Antibiotics are good to have. There are two kinds - gram negative and gram positive. I believe that the majority of bacterial infections are gram negative. I think some combine them both.

Anti fungal meds are good to have on hand - fungus can kill quickly.

I like quick cure as an external parasite med. too an internal parasite med would be good to have. I use prazipro. Get the SMALL bottle if you get it.

And the most important thing you can get with regards to disease and disease treatment.............. A quarantine tank.

Thanks for the input jaysee. Definitely getting a qt tank this weekend. Was looking at antibiotics and many are seperated to purchase individually. Did see one named furan 2 by api that has gram negative and positive and treats a Variety of diseases. Or am I better off buying the individual antibiotics such as Tetracycline and Erythromycin?? They do have prazipro tho. Will pick up a small bottle. I'm shopping from drfosterandsmith.com by the way anyone interested where I'm buying meds from.

Triple sulfa is good for gram negative. I also make sure I always have Methaline blue on hand. Jaysee gave a lot of good info. (:
