Please help with finrot...

So this past month i haven't been home because of school. My husband has been home taking care of all my critters. On my day off i come home and clean everyone's cage/tank. Last Wednesday i changed Leonard's water. I came home today and half of his dorsal fin is gone! I usually do 50% wc once a week. This week I was late by 5 days.

Tank is 5.5 gal
Heated/filtered
No tank mates
Haven't tested water parameters.

Also i noticed so green gunk on the black part of the heater.

I did 100% wc added 1 tbsp of aq salt and prime water conditioner. He had a minor case of fin rot previously due to a torn fit (stinkin plastic plants lol) and the aq salt cured it. Will it work again? Or should i add something else.

What kind of filter are you using?

If it disappeared that quickly, it probably got caught in the filter..

This is the best picture I could get. You can see a chunk is missing right in the middle.

I use the Topfin that came with the tank. I have the outflow baffled but not the bottom. He never seemed to have a problem with it before.
