I've already read the Betta Care sticky but i don't have the resources to get medications/AQ salt because I'm pretty young and my parents aren't as obsessed with bettas as me. Anyway, my betta has fin rot(I think, because the edges of his fin are grayish and getting thin) and I don't have anything to treat him with, and I can't get anything so what should I do? He seems happy and is building bubble nests every time I change his tank water. By the way, I it might be tail biting but probably not. I'm really freaked out.
