Unhappy What's happening to him?! Please tell me what to do!

Hi
My Betta is sick. After doing some research on the web, I thought it was fin rot because his fins looked ripped and there was a tiny black spot on his fin. I began treatment immediatly ( yesterday - put him in a small tank, tested the water ph, nitrate and everything first, then I added aquarium salt; I did everything I was told to do) but this morning I found him like this: grey line on his fin, dull colors and his face is white!!! He was not like this yesterday. What's happening to him?! What should I do!!??

PS. It is my first fish, so please understand I do not know much about diseases.

Shoot. This does look like that mystery illness that can kill a betta pretty quick. There are many more people much more experienced than I, but that silver spot is not a good sign. You should PM one of the members who deals with fish sickness and browse the stickies.

I'm so sorry that's he's not feeling good :[
