Alternative to quarantine

I want to buy one more fish for my 47 gallon bow front but I don't have a quarantine tank.

Is there an all round med that I could dose the whole tank with just to be on the safe side?

If you really wanted to I'd say general cure would be your best bet. It's usually a bad idea to medicate unless absolutely necessary though. Most medications cause kidney and liver damage.

Hmm yeh I know it's not the best idea. General cure is hard to obtain here too.
Think I'll have to set up another small tank.

She's gonna kill me.

100% support (but then I'm safe over here )

I was thinking about it and I reckon ich and bacterial (or they just look off) are ones I mostly see with new fish. Also some fish I think just can't adjust.

Do you really want to medicate a whole tank for one fish?
