Medicine Cabinet

Desirable for your fish treatment usage:

* Tanks for tank transfer quarantine protocol for eliminating ich
* Copper, ideally cupramine - for ich and other external parasites plus the Seachem test kit for copper
* Chloroquine phosphate for treatment of velvet (pure form)
* Praziquantel - for flukes and worms
* nitrofurazone - for open wounds or sores
* Metronidazole - for intestinal and other protozoa
* Formalin - for brook, uronema and other external parasites
* Erythromycin and Minocycline - for bacterial prevention/treatment
* kanamycin an anti-bacterial med that is very effective and gentle on fish.

* Food enhancers such as Selcon, Vitality, Vita-chem

I would add...

* pure oxygen with an airstone - helps with almost all medical conditions and power outages
* dexamethasone IM - reduces inflammation and stress response in fish
* enrofloxacin IM - broad spectrum antibiotic in targeted form, dosed by weight of fish
* tricaine - anesthetic - helps with short procedures and forced feeding

And one more thing:

Several battery operated air stones for power failures.

I also keep clove oil in my medicine cabinet in the event a fish is too far gone and can't be saved.
