Possible fin rot issue

Last night while doing some maintenance on my tank I noticed the fins on Cypress weren't looking good. The top seems like its deteriorating and the tail doesn't seem as long as it usually is. If I could take a pic I would but, I just can't get him focused enough.

I have already started treatment and put him in a 2 gallon clear plastic jug, with a silk plant. I am using 1 teaspoon of Epsom Salt / gallon. His jug is unfiltered and the room he is in is 85F so I'm not using a heater. I plan on keeping him in there for 10 days and will have his water changed daily.

How does this sound and does anyone have a pic of a Betta with fin rot?

Please post them if you do.

Sorry, I put this in wrong section. Mod. please move if needed.

I have had good luck using aquarium salt to treat fin rot. 1 tsp per gallon for 7-10 days.
