Ate vigorously this morning and he swam around a bit, but he tends to just sit if he doesn't get attention. As suggested I got rid of the larger pallets, so he only has his fine food for now. I think he is fine though, can't wait to get the treatment over and done with.

What kind of medications and how long you have to use it. I really think it not necessary. I really think that aq salt helped. I don't want you to overmedicate him.

About food again. Some pellets are more firm and bigger than other. Not sure which one you have. My bettas are piggy eater and like all of them. But some bettas are really picky.

Guppy is feeling great today. He ate a big breakfast and is swimming around a lot. He must know his treatment is almost over. :)

Wait for 2 week before you put filter on. Do 100% water changes 2 times a week. Just to make sure you get rid of ich and it not hiding in the gills.

Put your water up a little warmer than usual. If you can do 82F, that would be great.

Just an update. Guppy is doing great. He is off salt and meds and the water temperature is being brought down to normal. He is eating well and swimming around happily. He will be in his new tank at the end of the week.

Thank you everyone for all the help in getting us through this.

Anhel, thank you for all your help. I will keep you posted and I decided against the filter and opted for more frequent water changes as you suggested.

Can't wait to show everyone his new tank, it will be ( hopefully) very cute.
