Unhappy Fin rot help!

I just got two new boys a couple days ago. I changed their water right away, and they're eating and active, but both have fin rot. I got some BettaFix and I'm sure it'll take time to heal, but is there anything else I can do to help/speed up recovery?

Lots of the people on this forum say to avoid using Bettafix, since it can damage the labyrinth organ. In addition to keeping their water pristine, I would suggest treating them with 1tsp/gallon aquarium salt (for no more than 10 days). If the fin rot worsens, then it may be time to look into antibiotics. In my experience though, aquarium salt and clean water is usually sufficient to cure mild fin rot.

Warm water, too, about 80 degrees farenheit at least. Blue guy doesn't look quite as bad as the marbled fellow.
