Sorry to hijack OP's thread, but what's flex? I managed to catch ich on my betta early, and I'm doing a high salinity/very-high temperature treatment at the moment.

Flexibacter columnaris-but with the high salinity(3tsp/gal+) and lots of water changes you should be fine....just watch for secondary from the wounds the parasite leaves and try to limit the time in high temps and avoid sudden changes in temps....flex is always in the tank waiting for the right conditions to strike..... this bacteria thrives in high water temps.....
