If not I'll go with the API Tetracycline.
I have one question though, if it is fin rot shouldn't there be dark red or black on the edges, not white? If it ends up being fungus and not fin rot will the API Tetracycline do any harm?
fungus tends to be a secondary infection from fin rot or damage, I would start the medicine, aq salt is recommended for like when you finished the medical treatment with medicine to promote healing or if you are not intending to give him meds and relying on the fish's ability to heal itself, with just aq salt and clean water.
Daily water changes and medicine redosing as the meds instruct and see if that helps him
