    Pourquoi?
    Note; the topic title is a little confusing, this is what i have due to ill fish (generally those that have been bought while injured), personally i'd say if you were being sensible about meds if not a little paranoid you may as well have some;
    Melafix
    General tonic
    Protozin
    Copper based anti parasitic
    Good anti bacterial (gram negative, gam positive)
    Anti-fungal

    I'm not sure why people have got dechlor in their posts?

    Is the topic what do you have as meds?
    Or what do you recommend as preemptory medications?

    Bit of both really. I was looking at my fish cupboard and found more stuff for fish than I have in my own medicine cabinet so I thought it might be useful to know what other people have.
    I know when I was starting out the range of meds available confused the h*** out of me and it took me a while before I was happy with what I had.

    I got melafix, aquarisol, and some pimafix, dechlorinator(aqua plus), and some cycle, which basically sits there doing nothing.

    It's made by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Inc. They are both all-natural products that don't tend to stress the fish out as much IMO. I need to get some.

    I have:
    Quick Cure
    Lifebearer
    Fungus Cure

    I was continually battling fungus with a twin barred platy(RIP) and all Petco purchases get a dose of Lifebearer or Quick Cure while in the QT tank since they have so many parasites in their tanks. Lifebearer for the ones with anchorworms and Quick Cure for the ones with ich. :good:

    I don't keep any medications on hand. They all have an expiration date and are too expensive to keep "just in case" and then end up throwing them in the trash. The only thing I have on hand is a dechlirinator, Stress Coat.
