Medications for Aquatic Life

Fish owners have to take care of their gilled friends just as dog and cat owners have to take care of their four-legged friends, and that means keeping medications on hand for those times your fish fall ill. Zen Pet Supplies has a large inventory of medications for aquatic life, and these products will treat the most common fish ailments allowing you to nurse your fish back to health and saving them from becoming fatally ill. By keeping medications for aquatic life on hand, you will improve the chances of saving your fish by providing them quick treatment. If you have to run to the store to get fish medications, your fish may not make it, so it’s very important to have a well-stocked “pharmacy” of fish medications in your home. Ich, also referred to as “ick” is the most common fish ailment and is a protozoan disease that can become fatal if not treated promptly.

Fish will get sick from time to time no matter how well you take care of them and how often you clean their tank. With so many Ich treatments available on the market today, we’re sure you’ll find one or two that you really like. We even have products that measure the pH level of your tank; it’s important to have the proper pH level because if the water is too basic or too acidic, your fish can get sick and die. Achieving the recommended pH level for your particular type of fish will improve the chances they will thrive. You have taken the antibiotics Tetracycline and Erythromycin at some point in your life, and these medications work for fish, too. If you don’t have a lot of experience with fish, be sure to consult an experienced fish owner before administering any type of medication to your fish.

There are other types of infections and parasites that fish are susceptible to that can be treated with the various aquatic medications. Give your fish the best care possible by preventing them from developing stress, providing them with plenty of food, keeping their tank clean, providing them essential vitamins and minerals, and immediately administering fish medications at the first sign of sickness. These are just some of the steps you can take to help your fish live longer and healthier lives. We also carry medications for live plants and corals. From vitamins and supplements to the various types of medications and Ich treatments available, you're sure to find the right treatment for your fish right here on our website. The most important thing you can do to ensure your fish stay in good health is to seek treatment at the first sign of trouble, and if you don’t know what’s wrong with your fish, call someone immediately.
