Hi

I am currently starting a cichlid tank, the tank is cycling right now no fish in it.
I am getting ready to place an order online and would like to add common medications to have on hand if the need arises.
I am planning on getting some central/South American cichlids.
Ick?Hole in the head?What else?

Thanks a lot

Patrick

It's best to have melafix, pimafix and aquarium salt on hand. Other medications can be pretty harsh on your fish. The best overall all things you can do is to perform regular water changes to keep good water quality, have good filtration, good nutrition for your fish and not overstock your fish. These things will help prevent ich, hole in the and the like.

Honestly, the only thing I regularly have on hand is aquarium salt. Melafix and Primafix are good ideas if you're worried about it. Between the three of them, you should be able to fix most of the common problems you might come across.
