Hello all, I just bought two beautiful super deltas and they have come down with ick.
A brief history: I bought them from a store not in my hometown as they don't carry them here at all. The store they came from had very dirty water for all their bettas in tiny jars. So they were kept at room temp which is chilly there.
I then had them bag them with clean water (this might have been the mistake) and then they had to spend one night in the hotel room till we left for home the next day.
When I got home I acclimitized them as they were going into a heated 75 degree filtered tank. I have just the two of them in this tank which is divided and about 2 days ago I see they have spots all over.
What I have done so far is to raise their tank temp to 80 and I added 1 tsp of salt dissolved into the tank. Today they have about 50% less spots, more active so keeping fingers crossed. They are eating very well too.
Just to let you know I did not put any of the water from the bag they travelled home in into my tank.
So what do you all treat ick with for bettas??
I am going to leave them alone right now with what I did and do another water change in 2 days but if it does not clear them up would something like Aquarisol be alright for bettas??
