Betta's Fins are thinning. Please Help

Hey guys,
I just recently bought my 2nd betta fish (about 2 days ago) At first there were a couple spots where his fins were getting clear, but now there's whole sections. The edges of his fins are just slightly curled as well. His fins had spots of clear when I brought him home, and it's only gotten worse. However, My very first betta fish was in the same kind of water and that never happened to him, so I don't think it's an issue of water hardness. Also, as of a little bit ago his tail fin is starting to split down the middle almost

He's in a 2 gallon tank, with a pH of 7.0, and a temp of around 77. I have a Tetra whisper filter, and a small in tank heater.

Once I realized what was going on I hurried to the pet store and bought some Aquarium salt and BettaFix (by API)

Does anyone know what this is? Am I doing everything right? or is there something else I should be doing?

Thanks for your help!

I know my description isn't much to go on, and now that Starbright is more outgoing, I was able to snag some pics of his fins, I hope they will help you, help me! If you need some more pics, I can supply them. I'm so concerned for my little fishy, and I have no idea how to help him!
