Fin rot this fast?

So I just posted the other day about Peaches and his fin rot. After the salt bath and water change he was fine, I kept looking, no problems, even seemed to be healing. But I just glanced over at him and couldn't believe me eyes, his tail is horribly shredded now...

Does fin rot work that fast? He's sitting in another salt bath now. I guess I have to get him a 5gal n heater immediately, I had wanted to wait til payday :( But I don't want his fins ruined if that's it!

I would try Jungle Fungus Eliminator or Jungle Fungus Clear.

No meds. That looks a lot like tailbiting. Escpescially if it happened ridiculously fast.

hmmm...maybe he's bored with his gal tank? I'll try to get him a five gal tonight to split with another guy, maybe that'll keep him occupied enough. And if all else fails, I've seen some people on here split it with females...lol
and thanks for the help. I didn't think it could be fin rot so fast

I recently picked up BettaFix, is this something I can put in with the water that will help with healing his fins?

Also wanted to add that Walmart has 5 gallon tanks with hood, light, and filter for only $30.

I also bought BettaFix, so hope it works!
