New betta with horrible fins

I bought this "DT" at petsmart today and I was wondering how to take care of his holey fins. AQS or Epsom?

Aquarium Salt for 10 days, remember the 100% changes! He has a tail biting issue. :/

Figured I'd leave this PSA here (directed at no one in particular), since I've seen this question crop up quite a few times over the past couple of days:

Aquarium salt for fins.
Epsom salt for digestive.
They are not the same thing, so please don't mix them up when treating your fish or giving advice to someone else.

Definitely not either or, which is why I posted that PSA. Glad you chose the right one.

So I change the water every day and add the salt for 10 days?

Yes. Change everyday.
Here's an easier way to know the difference:
Aquarium Salt is for external problems.
Epsom Salt is for internal problems.

No problem! I just figured there would be less confusion if people wanted to know.
