    I don't want my fish to become ill and not have what I need to treat them. I had Maracyn and Maracyn 2, but they have expired so I threw them out. I am also thinking of getting Seachem Paraguard to have on hand but would that be unnecessary if I already have Prazipro? What medications and water additives/products do you personally keep on hand, and what illnesses/needs are they used for? Is there anything I have that you think should be replace by a superior product or is not suitable to use with goldfish? I was told to use Rid-Ich for ich, instead of Quick Cure by my LFS, but not sure if that is really necessary. I was also told to purchase "Nitrofuracin Green" but am not sure what the uses for that are. Also, do any of the products I listed below harm nitrifying bacteria, or is that only methylene blue?

    Currently I have the following:

    Seachem Prime
    Seachem Stability
    Seachem Stress Guard
    Seachem Equilibrium
    API Melafix
    API Pimafix
    AP Quick Cure
    API Fungus Cure
    PraziPro
    Metronidazole 100% powder FishVet brand (There is no expiration date on this, and that concerns me a little. I may just throw it out.)
