Is this fin rot? Need to know ASAP

I've noticed on one of my betta's crowntails, the spikes are starting to look funny and get shorter... i need to know if it's fin rot or not, so I can do something about it...and please advice on how to get rid of it if so. He is currently in a .5 gallon and before I get burned that's all I can afford for him right now, because I didn't know any better at the time I bought him. I change their water 50% once, 100% once to wash everything out, I use tap water with Jungle Start Right water conditioner, feed 1-2 pellets a day, keep them at a steady temp. Please help because i don't want to loose my little guy :(

:[ that's not cool...how do I treat it? Isn't it better to catch it at the early stages?

Try some Jungle Fungus Clear or Jungle Fungus Eliminator.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. I feel bad because I think it started after he took an epic jump into the sink when I was cleaning his bowl out... Poor little guy it's been a rough week on him :(
