In my opinion medications are needed no mater if you introduced new fish or not , for instance when my guys get in a fight and they have scrapes and damaged skin I usually put in a anti bacterial and some aquarium salt in with them it seems to work because I haven't lost a fish in a very long time, a very long time!


Some sites to Look at for help on this subject.


Jungle Labs
Aquarium Pharmaceuticals
Kordon




Some good brands I like to use:


For Bacteria/Fungus I use:


Melafix® by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals® : This is GOOD Stuff I recommend this to any one who will listen


Formalin by :it works ok


Formailn3® by Kordon® : Works fairly well


For Ich I use:


Before I use any medications for Ich I would try the old method first

Rid Ich+® by Kordon®: it's not to bad of stuff


For Water conditioners I use:


Aquanova +® by Kordon®
