greasy? fray?

Looks like my male beta, Desmond, might have fin rot? He's are looking awfully greasyish, and the 2 longish ones in the front are getting all curled and hardlooking. Looks like the top fin is starting to get a bit transparent and the bottom and tail fin is kinda of fraying at the tips. I can assume this is fin rot, i didnt know when i first got him, the female is loving life, desmond had a bubble nest in his old bowl i just transplanted both of them in almost a gallon each. If i just keep changing the water every few days should that be alright? Or should i get some medication for the lil guy 2morrow? I read somewhere that some Jungle Fungis thing is the best. Pretty much get something with tetracycline or minocycline. I just want him to be all spread out and happy looking like most of yall's. Thanks guys!

I would try water changes every few days and if he doesn't get any better, then use JFE.

should i pput him into a smaller bowl or cup while i do these constant water changes, cuz the thing he is in now would take ALOT of water to keep changing every single day.

Yeah I would just add a pinch of Aquarium salt to his water and keep up with water changes like every day. If he doesn't get better in a couple weeks use JFE

You could put him in a smaller container, but that might stress him out. I think I have a vase similar to what you use and I changed it every day, not a big deal.
