Does it have a heater? no
What temperature is your tank? not sure, room temperature is about 70 degrees
You need a heater, It needs to be set at 80F, Your fish is cold it will get sick and die without a heater.

Before your Betta became ill how often did you perform a water change? About every other week
You need to be changing water at least once a week depending on ammonia levels.

What percentage of water did you change? 100%
Do you vacuum the substrate or just dip out water? dip out water and rinse/wipe off gravel
100% water changes are not good for the fish, do 50%. Washing the gravel and stuff crashes any cycle you may have had, a light vacuum of the gravel is all you need.

BettaSafe water conditioner
Use this as per instructions.

Tidy-Tank sludge eradicator
This is junk at best, Do not use it.

aquarium salt,
I only use salt as a dip or bath I never add it to my main tank.

Water Parameters:
You need to get a water test kit API master freshwater kit is not bad.
