hole in fin!!

When I went to feed Aloha this morning, I noticed he has a whole right in the middle of his fin. When this happened to my last betta, I tried all sorts of fin rot treatments, but nothing cured it and he died. What is causing this and what can I do?!?!

IME, the fins will heal up with just doing regular water changes. I have a total of 13 Bettas; 9 females (community tank), 4 males (not all in the same tank) and there is almost always one with some kind of damaged fin whether be from nipping each other, getting it caught on something or whatever. I do nothing special other than my weekly 50%+ water changes. If you can post a pic we might be able to see something other than just a hole. I don't think fin rot will kill a fish, its usually an infection or something other than the fin rot.
