    Question Regular maintenance medications?

    I am new to discus tank and i am keeping tank healthy since 2 weeks.I have 75 gallon tank with 7 discus. I have a cannister filter and a skimmer.
    All is going well.
    I have read all beginners guide.
    My LFK said that every 35 days i have to medicate tank with metronidazole to keep healthy.
    So the my Q is-
    Is it necessary to medicate tank without any issue?
    If Y then which medication i needed to add regular basis to keep fish healthy?

    No medication unless needed, just like you don't take an aspirin unless you have a headache.

    When you buy healthy stocks from the start you could eliminate many problems.

    The 4Qs.
    1..buy quality discus from the start.
    2..maintain quality water.
    3..provide quality nutrition foods.
    4..follow a strict quarantine procedure.
