How contagious is Ich?

I just had to euthanize a female betta with ich, dropsy, and a long-term health decline (she was quite old & I kept thinking she was going to pass away on her own). The ich was the final straw which led me to take action. No one else in the tank shows any signs of ich (paradise fish, white clouds, skunk loaches, kuhli loaches, and one hillstream loach). Just how contagious is ich? Should I just watch and see if anyone else comes down with it? Or, should I treat the tank in advance?
Thanks in advance!
