Unhappy NEED HELP! first time got sick :(

Hi all betta lovers, I’m new to the forum and really some help!! I don’t have much experience with betta. I have it for about 3 years. I change water every week and add some betta water conditioner to it. He recently got some wired white stuff near the fin. Could anyone give me some suggestion on that? I appreciate all your help:)

It's hard to tell the size of your bowl but it looks like you likely need to do more frequent water changes perhaps daily depending on the size of it. Try answering the questions from http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=49233 (copy and paste questions and answers as a reply) so we can better asses your situation.
