No Sick Fish
No Sick: Fish Reef Safe Fish Medication
No Sick Fish is a US based manufacturer of Reef Safe Fish Medication, for both Reef and Fresh water tanks. Traditional fish medications available on the market, often require quarantining your fish. This puts extra stress on the already diseased fish and makes survival less likely. No Sick Fish has developed medication that is both safe for invertebrates, and does not require quarantining your fish.
Fish Medication Research
If you are reading this then it's very likely that your fish tank has been attacked by a disease outbreak. In such situations, most aquarists panic and try to fix things with the first cure they find without doing a little bit of research. But a little research can help a lot, the important question is how to choose the best medication for your fish tank? If you do a little digging, you will find lots of medications that claim to be reef safe, however you can't be sure unless you've checked them yourself. When I had this problem, (In my case it was Ick) I did a thorough research on how to get rid of it.
Finally, I was able to conclude that No Sick Fish is a lot better than other medications available in the market. It was not only cost-effective, but also met all the requirements which I had established before finally buying it. One of the criteria was that I didn't have the option to quarantine my fish.
Steps To Follow For Choosing the Right Medication
Below are some of the parameters I established before finally buying No Sick Fish medication. These points may help you choose the right option for your needs.
1. Identify the Disease
In order to choose the right treatment, you need to identify the disease first. If you don't know what you're dealing with, you might end up choosing the wrong medicine which can have adverse effects for the aquarium life. In the worst case scenario, it could even kill the fish so you must have a clear idea, what you're up against.
2. Reason of Disease Outbreak
You also need to find out what has precisely caused the disease to be triggered in the first place. Doing this will help you prevent this disease in the future. Some of the common reasons for disease in your fish tank can be improper pH balance, contamination, wrong ecologocal conditions, bacterial infections etc ad nauseam. Another important reason can be transport stress, and No Sick Fish has a solution for this too, called "Transit".
Why No Sick Fish Is the Best Reef Safe Fish Medication
After looking through a number of options, I found that with the No Sick Fish treatments I didn't need to quarantine my fish. This would've been a deal breaker for me.
Fast Acting: I needed something that would work quickly. I didn't want to loose my clown, (I'd already lost one). And No Sick Fish medication was to get visible results in as little as a week.
When using No Sick Fish, you don't have to worry about the live reef and invertebrates getting affected. It's considered 99.9% safe for all forms of life. In the past, it used to be quite hectic to transfer sick fish from one place to another in order to treat the fish tank. However, it has become fairly easy since you only have to use a few drops of No Sick Fish and wait for a week or two. It might take a bit longer for the tank to get completely free of disease, but this greatly depends on the specific disease.
As far as compatibility is concerned, you can use No Sick Fish for both fresh and salt water tanks. So far, it doesn't seem to show any side effects for aquarium life!

Diseases to watch out for
Scientic name: ichthyophthirius multifilis is also often labeled as freshwater ick or white spot disease. Ich is a skin problem that is able to impinge on both fresh and once in a while salt water fish. It is one of probably the most lingering sicknesses your tropical fish may get. Ich is brought about by single cell organisms known as ectoparasites. The disease causes white nodules very similar to white grains of salt or suscrose to pop up on specific parts of the body of your fish. Every one of these blemishes is in fact a parasite bend on feeding off your fish. Contaminated components or pet fish are the most basic avenues in which ich is transmitted to your ecosystem, so you will want to be very watchful every time you buy new pet fish or bring in pre-owned apparatus into your aquarium.
