Exclamation In need of some advice.Fin rot?

I am doing weekly 25% water changes weekly(2 1/2 gal tank), My Betta is very active and is very playful. This evening I noticed that there is a separation in the middle of his fin and the ends look like fin rot. Tested the water and found no problems water temp is good, regardless I paniced and did a full water change, cleaned every thing in his tank and new filter media & added salt. Is there something more I can do? He still looks happy and active, this is new to me and want to be sure that I'm doing the right things for proper care. Took some pic's could use expert advice.

In a 2 1/2 gallon tank I would do a 50% change once a week and a full change once a month.

His fins should regrow as long as the water is kept clean.
