I've been treating my female betta for ich for about 4 days:
50-75% water changes daily
1/2 tsp. aquarium salt per gallon 2x a day (disved in some of her tank water first)
Jungle ick gaurd II
Luckily she has not gotten worse but still has clamped fins, still darting and flashing in tank. Especially rubbing her gills on objects. They don't look damaged. She also like to wedge her self into tight spaces (has no trouble getting out)
I'm waiting for her tank heater to come in the mail so I can keep her tank at 80.
Now it's between 70 and 75
Ammonia is 0, nitrite 0
She is still eating but seems to be uncomfortable
Tank size is 2.5gallons
Plant: moss ball
Took all other plants out
How long will it take for her to stop rubbing/flashing
should I get a stronger med like rid ich or quick cure?
Or do I just need to be patient?
She only had a few spots on her fins and body that were hard to spot because she is pale colored. But she was darting and flashing which clued me in that something was wrong.
I don't see any spots anymore but wondering if they are still in her gills?
Thanks for reading this, I'm worried I'm missing something.
