After my tank wipe out on Saturday I've decided to complete my QT.
What medicines do you guys keep on you all the time?
I want to build up a sort of Fish first aid kit for the QT and Hospital, so if something goes wrong I can act immediately.

This is something I was thinking about as well. Would be good to know.

I would imagine something like cuprazine or copramine will be in the list together with a copper test kit.

Maybe paraguard, or if you want to hypo salinity water and salt on tap to do a quick transfer

The bucket method is not the same as quarantine.
Bucket method for 10 days, then quarantine for 6 weeks

There are a couple of threads on the forum about where to get Formalin or where to get it in a different form, you're going to have to search though, can't remember what they were about.

For the period the fish are in the bucket, I add nothing. Although it would be an ideal time due to the small water volume. downside is that you need to be very careful with your measurements.
