    So far I have not had any problems with sick or injured fish (knocking on wood right now! ;)) but I was wondering if it would be a good idea to put together a kind of first aid kit so that if an emergency arises I am prepared to start some kind of care (of course after researching and asking for guidance here first) until exact problem is figured out and a more specific medication or treatment can be started.
    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Thanks so much for those! Sorry for the repetitive thread, having some trouble searching on this site lately. Not getting back a lot of results for some reason. Oh well, at any rate I appreciate your response!

    This is what I have on hand at all times:
    Medicated Flakes: Praziquantel, Metronidazole
    Antibiotic: Kanamycin sulfate,
    100% metronidazole powder for water column if fish wont eat
    For dips: methylene blue
