Anyone know of alternative of this that is the same or similar. I always keep this on hand. Found it is the best cure for my discus and shrimp. Summer is coming so I like to have some on hand. I can't find it anywhere, shows out of stock every where.

Maracyn 1 is erythromicin (for gram positive). Maracyn 2 is minocycline/minocin - a type of of tetracycline (for gram negative). I just got some off amazon last week, but they show out of stock now.

Not sure, but API T.C. Tetracycline may provide a similar function, though one place I read said that the minocycline version is more potent than regular tetracyclines.

This minocycline/minocin works better with inverts

If any one finds some buy it and I will buy it from them

So would we be able to use the minocycline that is in the 100 mg capsules that vets use for cats/dogs? Just parcel it out into ten equal portions like we do the dog dewormer fenbendazole? These two sites require a prescription; maybe that is why it is being discontinued by Sentry Mardel. Your local vet could provide it....
