Oh no! Ive never had ick before on bettas so I hope someone else out there can help you out! Idk maybe cut the reg dose into 1/4 dose? Do you have any aquarisol?
Okay so I read this online:
Raise the temperature to 85-86, but do it over 2-3 days or more or the fish could be shocked. You could ad salt, but Im not sure if you need to. The microscopic ich "tomites" will not be able to grow and take hold in 85 degree water, and the visible ones will have a slightly shorter lifespan, The temperature needs to be up for 2-3 weeks total, then lower it slowly over 2-3 days again If the ich is cured.
Adding the salt will help them build a strong stress coat so that they are less prone to ich.
Hope this helps!
