Fin rot, temp sensitive?

Hey guys, dealing with a fish I just got imported. Its in really bad shape and I believe it suffers from fin rot. I am treating with aquarium salt for now, probably stress coat as soon as I get to petstore. So what is the best temp for combating fin rot? Thanks .

They are Tropical Fish. So, I guess 78F-80F. I don't think it should be TOO HOT.
It should be on the HIGH 80's for treatment. Such as White Spot Disease.

I would just keep the temp around 80. This will keep the fish the most comfortable and allow him to better fight off the illness.

Yeah, I've actually made myself a little "betta book" with as much info as I could find and noticed that certain diseases require specific temperatures during treatment. Just trying to find out as much as I can. These fish came halfway around the world with no problems and the local postal service almost killed them. So mad I could rant and rave for hours about it, but ill save you guys the headache.
