It's called Triple Sulfa. He looks really bad, in some places his fins have rotted right to his body :(

Also, the tank is cycled so I dont usually do water changes that big. If it increases his chances I will make an exception, of course.

A 3 gallon never really cycles fully. I would do 100% changes and daily if it is that bad. remove carbon from the filter, get some filter floss to put in it's place if you have not already.

Will do! I take it filter floss is better than the default black sponge?

sponge is fine, just no activated carbon if the filter uses it during medication.

I hope he makes it!! I've had success with salt baths and clean water. My Betta had severe fin rot. I don't know if his fins will ever grow back to normal.
