Achernar's Fins

Achernar's fins are going to need some major cleaning up but I'm not sure what to use to make them healthy again. Is there a product you'd suggest that helps promote healthy fin repairs? I wouldn't be making so many threads if I wasn't new to caring for Bettas. Thank you for your time and patience.

A little aquarium salt, clean water. Best things for promoting fin growth. Products like Bettafix claim they do but I've never seen a difference and the active ingredient in them can actually make a Betta even more sick.

The number one medication for freshwater fish is lots and lots of fresh, clean, dechlorinated water.......and a good varied diet......and time......

Then I've already done all that. I just wanted to make sure I was giving the proper care that's needed for Achernar to have healthy fins that I never got a chance to see. I can't wait until his torn fins repair and grow into a colorful rainbow. Is there any limit to how long it might take for his fins to grow back to normal or do I just have to wait and find out?
