I got confirmation from New Life that this product was discontinued as of Feb 2020, which explains why it's out of stock every where.

Do people know of good alternatives?

Our friends at Goldfish Island suggested mixing API General Care with pellet food:

Wouldn't the food get soggy? How would you know how much to put into the pellet food? 

I think its and interesting idea but I think it would be hard to control the amount in the pellet food. JMO

I'm not an expert on these ingredients, but here's a comparison: 

New Life Hex Shield (recently discontinued): Magnesium Sulfate, IH-Imidazole-I-ethanol, 2-methyl-5-nitro-(443-48-1)

API General Cure: Active Ingredients: 500 mg Metronidazole and 150 mg Praziquantel per teaspoon.

MetroPlex (Seachem): metronidazole (70%)

SF40M Medicated Sinking pellet (on Ebay): 2.6 g/kg Nitrofurazone

Medi-Gold (old, discontinued product): sulfadimethoxine & ormetoprim sulfa
