    What do you consider staples to have on-hand in a fish first aid kit? What medications would you recommend buying to avoid frantic runs to the pet store or expensive next day shipping?

    My 2 staple treatments are a 1 oz bottle of PraziPro for parasites and ER Eurythamycin for bacteria.

    I have never heard of Eurythamycin before. I do have a bacterial treatment and Prazipro. I should get a fungal treatment to have on hand as well.

    It wouldn't hurt to have an antifungal on hand, and of course chlorine remover. A sponge filter added to your current tank would become cycled and always be ready for an emergency quarantine tank.

    Mouth to mouth resuscitation is usually sufficient.

    Seriously, the only thing I have is BettaFix.

    See, I’m not the only one we’ll prepared!

    I order online too for better pricing and is why I keep it all on hand.
