Herb -.-

My boys not doin good everyone. Hes most deffonetly got Ick. It has spread on to both of his pectoral fins now with 2 spots on one and 3 big ones on the other with another startin to appear on his dorsal fin. I'm keepin his water changed every day with 50% changes and gunna get some aq salt once I get paid. Right now I'm using this terrible Tetra fiz tablet for the pass 2 days witch seems to have done nothin but slime the heck out of his tank. Ill keep yall posted with him hopefully with just water changes till I ken get the salt an hold it back a little longer.

Good luck! I hope he recovers soon!
Everything ur doing sound's good! (I'm so not an expert with Betta illnesses since my boy's never get sick, they just up and die when they get older *sigh*). But hopefully someone else will be able to help u more.

I saw that wallyworld had ick meds for cheap, but not sure of the consensus on that, and have never used them myself

I'd say buy some sort of ick remover .I found a good one called super ick cure by API works really well.
