What are the plant-safe medicines for fish?
My tank is being plagued by both a bacteria fin-rot on my panda corydoras and a parasite in my guppies. I cannot effectively treat them because they get reinfected when I return them to the hospital tank.
The last time I treated my main aquarium for anti-parasite, I made quite a mess. My plants immediately started a rapid die off. Thankfully, none perished, but I do not want to risk that again.
What are effective plant safe fish medicines available?

Stuff I've used that ate commended dosage, did not seem to harm plants:
- praziquantel(plant, shrimp and snail safe)
- metronidazole(plant shrimp and snail safe)
- seachem paraguard(plant safe, untested on inverts)
- kanamycin(plant and snail safe, untested on shrimp)
- minocycline(plant safe, untested on inverts)

I have had great luck with Prazi-pro for parasites, and Paraguard for both bacterial and fungal infections.
While I have never used them in a planted tank, they are said to be plant safeIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
