What Chemicals (if any) do you use?

I am curious as to what brands of chemicals we all use (if any at all). I'm looking for specific dechlorinators, test kits, meds, ammonia de-tox, etc.

I'll get the ball rolling

"Aqua Plus" or "Prime" as a dechlorinator (Double dose)
"Quick Cure" or "Maracide" for Ick (2/3 dose)
"Melafix" for Fin Rot or cuts and scrapes
"Wardly Brand" test products (I don't test too deep)

That is about the extent of anything I will put in my tanks. I have been extremely selective when adding anything too my tank as Clowns and Balas are just a NIGHTMARE to find gentle chem's.
