In my arsenal I have

MYXAZIN lowers the count of harmful bacteria in aquarium water, treating Fin Rot, Body Rot, Ulcers, Sores and other bacterial infections. MYXAZIN will also help to control Pop - Eye Disease, Cloudy Eyes and Mouth Fungus. MYXAZIN should be used daily until symptoms disappear (typically this would be between 3 and 5 applications). MYXAZIN can also be used to sterilise nets and live foods such as Daphnia and Tubifex. MYXAZIN is mild on fish, highly biodegradable and effective against a wide range of fish health problems.

PROTOZIN is used for the control of all protozoan and fungal infections e.g Whitespot, Fungus, Neon Tetra Disease, Velvet, Costiasis and Trichodiniasis. You will require 4 separate applications to complete the course of treatment. By adding the treatment on days 1, 2 and 3 the product safely compounds in strength and does not burden the already stressed animals with a hard hitting formula. The final dose on day 6 is a preventative measure to try and ensure the organism does not re-occur. PROTOZIN's properties are highly effective at treating all its target organisms. Protozin is our best selling disease treatment world wide.

STERAZIN is used or the control of gill and body parasites which cause fish to flick when no symptoms are visible to the unaided eye. STERAZIN will also aid the control of internal parasites such as Round Worm, Thread Worm, and Intestinal Worm. In order to destroy the parasites in all stages of their life cycle you will need to use the product on days 1, 3, 6, 8 and 10. STERAZIN may also be used to aid the sterilisation of aquatic plants and is highly biodegradable.


Koi Care F-M-G Mixture Anti-Parasite and Fungus Mixture of Malachite Green and Formalin formulated for treating sick Koi with a Koi parasite problem or Koi fungus infection. FMG provides the same treatment levels as the two individual components used separately. A ready mixed Koi treatment eliminating the need to mix seperate treatments, the treatment levels are higher than other propietary mixtures which means this product should not be used when sensitive fish such as Golden Orfe or Sturgeon are present. FMG can be used where Goldfish are present.
The market leading Koi anti-parasite and fungus fish disease treatment for Koi, there is nothing else on the market as effective as FMG to fight unwanted parasites...A Koi keepers secret weapon!

Interpet No.9 Anti Internal Bacteria Unique patented formulation that cures fish of
internal systemic bacterial infections caused by
Pseudomonas, Aeromonas and Vibrio bacteria
species.

Interpet No.10 Methylene Blue A traditional treatment used to treat a variety
of fish disease. Can also be used to reduce the
toxicity of nitrite in aquarium water.

JBL GyrodolCures fluke diseases.

Contains Praziquantel. The most renown active ingredient in veterinary medicine for curing flukes infections.Fights flukes infections within 6 hours!
Suitable for salt- and fresh-water.

Kusuri Wormer plus is a great new treatment for tropical and coldwater aquarium fish. Recommended for: tapeworms,helminthic, flukes and other large parasites and invertebrates.
Wormer plus is manufactured by Kusuri products, Flubendazole is the main active ingredient, then naturally sourced calcium carbonate acts as a gentle booster and pick me up after the pests are killed.
Flubendazole has been widely used for the treatment of worms in Discus and other Tropical fish for may years and has a proven track record of success.
This product does not contain antibiotics and is still marketed with the small animal exemption scheme. It is 100% legal VMD approved, passed with risk phrases also safety phrases and has been covered with a COSHH sheet. The new wormer plus has a easy to use 30 gallon measuring scoop (supplied) in every pack, making it easy to measure out and to administer the treatment. Instructions are on the back of every pack.
This wormer will not raise your PH, TDS or GH. .

eSHa Hexamita - Discus Disease HEXAMITA is a unique treatment that combats disease in Discus and other Cichilds.

Initially when first into fish keeping in general, I stocked up on the usual stuff "just in case". But now tend to stick with melafix. New fish, moving fish, bit under the weather fish ..... just add a splash of melafix, and everything tends to work out just fine.

I am a cheapskate though, and purchased the pond version. Not that much more expensive, but a lot more concentrated, meaning literally a small amount is plenty.

my 1st few arnt exactly meds but prevention is better than a cure ..

obviously frequent water changes and well kept tank

crushed peas ...works great for fishy constipation .bloat etc keeps them regular ..

crushed garlic ..great at building up and keeping their immune system in check its good for healing themselves as well as (my understanding that certain worms , or flukes have probs latching onto the gills etc as what is secreted via the garlic makes this harder for them to attatch to fish that and they dont like it ..)

epsom salts ..another useful item for fishy constipation ...

meds also in my stock pile which ive built up over time or had given me ..rarely if never used ..

kursuri wormer
sera med nematol /camallianus wormer
melafix
myxazin
protozin

That's a really good tip. How much stronger is it? My quarantine tank is only 30 litres so I'd need to be able to measure out a smaller qualitity - though I do have a 1ml syringe (advantage of working in the NHS!!)

its not that they have delecate skin, its that they have no scales.

their entire body is covered in tastebuds to be able to sense their environment better

and yes, for most meds I run them at half dose for twice as long. the only ones that i dont are Melafix, Pimiafix and Big L.

I find that Paraguard fixes pretty much everything. its very broad spectrum.

I put all my new fish in it when i first got them for 2-3 days after they get settled in the Iso tank and then acclimate them to the main tank over the next day.

I also had really good results when one of my Blind cave tetras was acting weird and had some strange marks on his side. I kept him in my Isolation tank for a week with treatment dose and he recovered from what ever it was.

I also just used it on my big guy who bloated.. but he was more constipated as evidenced by the huge pile Shocked after he was fed the peas.....

I Keep my tanks slightly salty, I use Aqualibrium salt at a dose of 0.1%. (1 gram of the aqualibrium salt to 1 litre of water).

When I do a water change I measure the quantity of water taken out, and replace with the same plus the appropriate volume of salt to keep the 0.1% level.

Since I have started doing this I haven't had a single issue with any fish in my tanks.

The BN's dont seem to mind it at all. Its also a lot cheeper than any other medication.

Cheers Jon
