Unhappy I don't know what to do with Phantom

Some of the bottom fins have come back that weren't that bad but his tail is still shredded. I took a picture of him, the first picture is him before and the second one is him now so you can see the big difference. He's a double tail although it's kind of hard to tell now. He's still eating and swims fine, he's just missing part of his tail. I've tried JFC, Bettafix and Macryn and none have worked. I'm starting back with the JFC because it's not as strong as the other ones. Poor guy has been in medicine for over a month now. I give him a couple days break between medications so I don't overdue it. Thankfully Picasso my other DT is healing up nicely. Hopefully I can go to Petsmart tomorrow to pick up more water conditioner and I'll pick up salt too. What brand is good?

I'm so sorry to hear about your problems with Phantom. Have you looked to see if he ever bites his tail? It took me almost a month to figure out that my rescue Prof. Lupin was a tail biter....I just thought he had the worst case of fin rot known to man.

Yeah I was thinking it could be that but I've never seen him do it. I bought API Aquarium salt tonight and I'll start treating him with that after he's done with the JFC. I've heard that sometimes they'll bite their tails when they see another betta and he was in the same tank with Picasso so now he's in his own tank.
