Fin Rot... I think

Housing
What size is your tank? 24 by 12 by 12inch, 56.6 litres or 15 gallons
What temperature is your tank? 26 celcius
Does your tank have a filter? Yes
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No
Is your tank heated? Yes
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? 2 albino corydoras

Food
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? Wardleys essentials but I just bought some hikari betta bio gold
How often do you feed your betta fish? Every morning

Maintenance
How often do you perform a water change? The bigger tank is relatively new, so no system has be scheduled yet.
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 40-80%
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Water conditioner

Water Parameters:
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters? Not yet but my test kit is in the mail. I will add later.

Ammonia:
Nitrite:
Nitrate:
pH:
Hardness:
Alkalinity:

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Parts of his fins turn transparent white and then the next day they are gone
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? No
When did you start noticing the symptoms? 3 days ago
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? I changed the water two days in a row, but that stressed him out, so I am not going to do it each day
Does your fish have any history of being ill? He has almost recovered from injuries after getting stuck in a homemade divider.
How old is your fish (approximately)? I have had him for one year.

Is that fin rot???? The injury took his immunity down and made him more vulnerable to disease. How do I fix it? I cant put him in his own tank to the other heater and filter gets here, otherwise my corydoras will be in danger?
Please help! I can't put aquarium salt in yet because of the corydoras but what else can I do??

I meant to say I can't move the corydoras because they need the heat. But my betta needs the heat to heal

He also has a white dot behind his head. I assumed it was one of his wound healing but it could be something else

I looked more closely and saw some red tips, only tiny on his fins.
