Cleaning my tank after treatment for fin rot

I noticed that my betta Finnius has some chunks of his tail missing and that there is black edging, He had this black edging when I bought him almost a month ago, but now I think it might be fin rot related. I am starting him on a treatment of salt but I was wondering if I should be scrubbing/sanitizing his decorations and such or if I could get away with a thorough rinsing since I don't want to upset the cycle.

Cleaning/scrubbing the decorations is unnecessary and will disrupt your cycle, which could make the rot worse. Just do the 100% water-changes and aq salt and it should work fine.

Rinsing the decorations in new water (water not from the tank,) will also disrupt the cycle. My advice is to leave the decorations alone.
