Smokey (the female betta fish) lived in a community tank with 2 other males in a 10 gallon tank (they were separated with plastic mesh). This tank has a heater/filter, set to about 82'F temperature.
I noticed that Smokey was getting finrot, about 1/4 of her tail was missing. The finrot looked jagged, not an "even" disappearance of her tail. I've been reading online that the best remedy was more frequent W/Cs. I already was doing 2/3rd (66%) water changes every 3 days in the 10g tank, but I changed my habit to changing 75% of the water every 3 days:

In spite of the increased W/Cs, her tail kept getting shorter~ about 1/2 of her tail was missing. I decided to isolate her in a 1.5g unfiltered/unheated tank. As bettafix was the only medication i had (and it claimed to help heal fins), I used it at half-dose in her tank.
2 days ago:
She stopped eating, and laid-around @ the bottom of the tank: She shows no interest in the presoaked-pellets that I drop in her tank. Her fins are cramped up, and I can't tell if the finrot is progressing or not:
1 day ago:
I decided to put her back in the tank, maybe she was depressed and missed the company of her "brother" fish...... She's still moping/not eating.
Can anyone help? :(
