My lfs is not a walkable distant, i am using several stored and dont alwYs have time to and it would be nice to just make my own recepie to use until i do go etc, also for knowlege wise i am very intrested even if i dont accualy use them.

For ich you can use rock salt instead of meds, and to get rid of pond snails, you stick lettuce in the tank, and the snails will be munching on it, then you just toss the snails and the lettuce into the trash. Great for quarantining plants.

Depending on what you are trying to treat will depend on the treatment. Velvet, ick, fungus, or parasites. One of the all around products is garlic guard, it might be worth investigating.

Shelled, blanched, cooled peas work for digestion issues, like if poop isn't normal or your fish is constipated. Things like bloating, no appetite, swimming upright, funny poop.
