Medicine Cabinet

Postby down under » Tue 09 Oct, 2018 9:57 pm

What do you keep on hand in your 'medicine cabinet' next to your QT? What diseases/parasites are you most likely to be encountered in the hobby in Australia?

I found this a useful guide but maybe US conditions are a little different from the Australian reefer situation


I would be interested to hear what other reefers have on hand. I am not looking forward to an encounter with marine ich or velvet but would like to be prepared in the event it should happen. For what it's worth I have just finished dealing with bryopsis and can vouch for the effectiveness of fluconozole as a treatment (hallelujah). Others speak well of elevated Mg levels.

I guess the link I have provided identifies a good arsenal of products to have on hand. Still, am interested to hear what others use locally.

Medicine Cabinet

I just read this for the first time. I would love to see a picture of the medicine cabinet. I was wondering if the one in my bathroom could be oak. I have never seen one like mine that was not painted. All of the woodwork in my house, including the bathroom and water closet is oak. So I though maybe the medicine cabinet might be also.
