    Thanks everyone -

    The good news is both are getting MUCH better. I purchased a 5 day treatment, but looks like I'll have to do another cycle to fully rid Zeus of his Ick. Poor guy... I caught it pretty late in the cycle.

    Anyway, thank you for everyone's help!

    If you ever have a relapse of ick, I seem to remember some sort of home remedy that uses table salt. In a pinch, when aquarium medicine isn't handy, I'm sure you could find a recipe for the saltwater treatment online. Glad to hear things have turned out alright.

    baylorguy, ive had problems with ick in the past with some bettas which end up killing them fairly quickly. but I read doing some online research that RO water should never be used with them and its what i used with my previous bettas, now i have my first betta in 6 months and started mixing half well water(very hard water) and half ro, what were you using if i may ask?

    im basically just trying to figure out if they are more susceptible to ick with straight ro water. treatment for ick with previous fish didnt do anything, it just kept getting worse even after water changes and adding a bunch of that blue drops stuff for me...
