Unhappy How to Cure Bad Fin Rot

So I had to leave for a month and I left my pet male Halfmoon Betta, Livius, with a friend. While I was gone, he developed horrible fin rot (I nearly did not recognize him upon my return). So I got BettaFix and at least he was healed and back to being lively. However two months later, his fins still look rather bad. Is there anything else I could do to help him?
Here are before and after pictures:

Poor lil guy.
Skip the Bettafix and go with the Maracyn one and Maracyn two combination. Change 20-30% of the water before each treatment (5 days for the first round), remove any carbon/charcoal filtration until you're done treating and keep the water super super clean with a little AQ salt added with each water change.

Keep us posted with your progress and let us know if we can help more. Good luck.

Whenever your medication lets you to, remember to have super-clean water, especially if a betta is healing from fin rot. If you think he's having tail-troubles, all the more reason to clean it more often as well to keep it away. Good luck~
