Oh Dear! Tail Shredding?

At first I thought Achilles had fin rot but now I think he's been shredding his own tail. His water params are 0 ammo, 5 nitrates, 0 nitrites and 6.8 ph. He's in a ten gallon with a heater that keeps his tank at 78. I do bi weekly waterchanges on him. His fins look horrible but they don't look eaten away they look like they've been picked at does that make sense? My camera card is lost at the moment so I can't get a picture. Should I add some melafix to the tank? Anythoughts on this?

I am by no means an expert but without a pic I would be geussing finrot. Try adding a little salt to the water. You may need to treat with a med for fungus if it does not respond to the salt. . Some of the other members might be more knowledgable on which to use. I used fungus clear by jungle when one of my other bettas had fungus. Check this info on betta first aid from bettatalk
