when I do a heat treatment I raise my aquarium to 86 degrees along with aquarium salt, the ick shouldn't stand a chance, especially if your cleaning the gravel really well each time you do the water change.

How long are you leaving?
Yeah scrub down everything and do another 50-80% change before you leave tomorrow.

He should be fine for a week...but you might want to get someone to feed him/ change his water (so the ich doesn't come back).

one more very important thing- ich has several stages, and the first two are in the water, but so tiny you can't see them. Ask your parents to do 100% water changes until you get back. Doing so will keep the ammount of unseen-to-be-ich to a minimum.

Also, you should really get a heater as soon as possible. One of the reasons she may have gotten ich was because her immune system was lowered by fluctuating water temps :)

Best of luck!

You didn't specify whether you betta was a he or she- I just automatically go with 'he's' because that's what most people have here.

Good Luck.
