not sure what to call it, fins tore bad

buddy calls me up, saying his betta in his community tank is in bad shape, he works all time and guessed he hasnt noticed in a while, anyway i took him to get him better, he is doing fine now but his fins are awful. the look like a mix of fin rot and spider webs his tail is split so bad. Apparently him and some fish has been fighting. So atm he is fine and happy in his 1 gallon halfmoon tank. I want to know what to do to get his fins back.. poor baby

The best treatment is clean warm water, 100% changes every day if possible.

You can also treat with AQ salt for 10 days. 1 tsp/gallon and doing 100% water changes each day (obviously replacing the salt you removed). This should help out pretty well.

If all else fails you can get some actual medication that will help with fin rot (just avoid anything with "Fix" at the end) and treat with it till you see re-growth

AQ will help with infection, but it doesn't regrow fins. Clean water is the most important thing. Stress coat at 1 ml per 1 gallon, fresh water vitachem at 2 drops per gallon, and/or IAL will also help with faster regrowth.
