What medications do you keep on hand?

Something for ick?....Some antibiotic?...Melafix?

What's in a good basic medicine cabinet?

I keep Aquazole and Copper for parasites and Hyroplex to dip new arrivals or sick fish! Although I'm looking forward to hearing what other people have to say!

UV and cleaner shrimp in the tank. Hydroplex in case I have to pull a fish to medicate. I put the fish into a QT and pull him out occaisonally for a dip. I don't use any medications in the QT, just really strong water quaility.

Neosporin, hydrocortisone cream, Benadryl and Pepto-bismol.

...but those are for the reefkeepers (in association with the reef-keeping.)

Any fish antibiotics we had expired a long time ago. I think we probably have some old maracyn, and maybe copper. Malachite green, too, if I remember right. Needless to say, I don't keep any lying around. I'm more into prevention than treatment, and have cleaner shrimp in the tanks.

yes reef tank with fish

Anyone hear of Maracyn Plus...a new liquid. Not sure what the difference is between Maracyn, Maracyn II, and now Maracyn Plus.

Also, I hear Coppersafe is good. There is also Maracide, again, not sure how it's different from Coppersafe, though both are Mardel products.

flatwormexit has been added to my medicine box recently. the worms are showing up in more and more lfs, and i have already had to dise my tank twice now.

i think i need to move to a pre dip for my corals and what not to help mitigate this problem though.
