    what would be the proper cure for this, if there is even any since it got so bad. I really dont get it, The betta is in clean water. Cycled 20 gallon tank.

    I don't see anything that is indicative of rot. Are you referring to the dark colored area at the base of the fish's tail? Rot usually looks whitish and fluffy or reddish and inflamed.
    Is there erosion of fins/tissue going on or is it just a discoloration? Sorry but I can't really detained from the picture.

    What else is in the 20 gallon tank? Looks like it might be a bite from another fish.

    The fins were there, But a while ago, i noticed they looked almost burnt. Like he was sleeping on the heater, But as the days go on, the discoloration gets farther up his back, There is white fluffy stuff hanging where his fins were. So he's missing quite a patch of fins, And now the dark is going up his body.

    Did you measure for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels? If not, do so and post results.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    He is getting worse, His bones are starting to show. Hopefully i can reverse it with a Antibiotic. But chances are looking poor.

    Yeah ammonia is always 0, Nitrite is always 0 and nitrate is high, 20ppm out of the tap but I use a nitrate filter before putting it in tank witch knocks it to around 10, but 5-10 in tank, I have it loaded with plants.
