Exclamation Betta is sick!!

I had 7 glolight tetras in a ten gallon with a male betta. 2 of the tetras died. The first one I had to euthanize because he turned almost completely black and one floating at the top barely moving. The next one I found rotting in the tank And now my betta is very lethargic and has a spot of white fuzz on his body and his tail looks very torn. His head also looks shiny. I quarantined him in a 2 gallon which is floating in the main tank to keep warm. The other tetras look very healthy. Please help me!

It sounds like fungal growth.

My camera isn't working :( but ill try to describe it better: he used to be red, but he's turned very pale. His head kinda looks shiny. His fins look like there torn/melting, and there's a patch of white fuzz right before his tail fin.

It sounds like velvet along with something else. Saying that he looks shiny, makes me think that. Take a flashlight and look for gold or rust colored "dust" or film anywhere on his body, especially around the gills. The fuzz could be some sort of fungus. In any case, you're going to need to treat the whole tank.
