betta with split fins and fin rot

So my betta has split fins and fin rot and i have no clue why. he also has red at the beginning of his fins where the fins meet the body. The tank has been setup for 2 years now. Has always been 0,0,<5. Heavily planted and the only tank mates are cpds. I've been adding melafix at half a dose for a week now and i dont see much of an improvement. I cant really do water changes everyday bc i have midterms this week plus the params are perfect.

What are cpds?
If you don't have time to do water changes,do it when your free or weekends.

Also anything ending in Fix can harm their labyrinth.
Has he been breathing heavy? Sitting around?
I would keep his water as warm and clean as you can.
Do you have time to clean it if you add AQ salt?

I have time to do the weekly water change but that about it. That's why I did the melafix at half a dose. Cpds are celestial pearl danios. No labored breathing and hes active.
