I would monitor the water parameters like ammonia, nitrites, nitrates and pH if I were you just as a precaution. API liquid test kit is recommended. If you cannot afford it, let your local fish store test it for you but be sure that their test kit is a liquid test kit, not test strips. Let them write down the exact results and post them here.
I forgot to add that your betta has bacterial fin rot. Frequent partial water changes are needed to improve its condition. Do you use dechlorinator to cancel out the chlorine and chloramine? Any medications used against bacterial infection will work. Use only one medicine and avoid at all costs from buying any other medicines.
By the way, welcome to Fishforum.com.
