Betta fin appears as shedding and missing parts. F

What are your water parameters? (Temperature, pH, ammonia levels, nitrite levels, nitrate levels, chlorine levels)

A couple things to look into: 

-Water parameters: If the water parameters are off (too cold, temperature fluctuations, extreme pH, chlorine in water) that can cause the fish to get an infection. The conditions would need to be changed and the infection be treated (with aquarium salt or medications).

-Other Fish: Are there other fish that are attacking and tearing the fins or stressing out the betta so it gets an infection (aggression)? Aggression can cause illness that would need to be treated. Another question is have new fish been added that bought in a sickness?
