Oh, aren't you the funny one this morning.

That's one thing I've never posted here, and now that you've called me out on the carpet...when I was treating my RT for the eye injury after I had done the round of Furan-2 my treatment protocol (on the advice of Eddie, and why would one ever disagree with Eddie when it comes to discus???) was to do daily 90% water changes and keep salt (ordinary table salt) at a concentration of one tbs per one gallon! It scared me to do this, but I figured my fish was a goner anyway so why not?
(Keep in mind I was treating for an eye injury, most eye drops are saline based.)
Long story short, discus recovered and eye was saved.

LOL. Yeah. Big advocate of salt over there. I am too, TBH. I have had lots of Discus shipped and it def reduces stress and can be used instead of a harsher medication for lots of issues.

Well, discus are discus, and with that being said, now that you're doing community tropical you can put the salt away now.

the only medication I keep on hand at home is Super Ick Cure, because as has already been said, if I ever run into a need for anything else, I live in a city where it's easy to run out and get it when I need it. I also have aquarium salt at the advice of someone from the LFS, but when she recommended it to me, she told me to use it as a dip instead of treating my whole planted tank with it... I've used it once, and the fish died a day later and I've never bothered with it since. I work out of town so I keep a couple extra things for my fish there... I keep Super Ick Cure, Pimafix, and Melafix on hand at work.

Waste of money. Table salt if just fine. But apparently I won't need it anymore!

Agreed, waste of money. I now use my aquarium salt, crushed, for rimming my margaritas!
