Question What is this?

Hi, guys.

I noticed Dumbledore has this...Odd coloring on his tail. I don't think it's fin rot, but maybe some healing/recovering from when he had it when I got him. I have 2 pictures, and they are blurry but I think you'll see what I mean. The pictures make it look orange, but they are more whiteish kind of color. The area is where he folds his tail if he's clamped, I don't know if that helps you at all. I noticed it Sunday evening, but I couldn't get him to hold still long enough for me look properly -_-

If it isn't healing fin rot, what is it? Is it something I should be concerned about? How can I fix it? Thanks a bunch.

You can see it okay here, it's the orangeish/whiteish stripe in the middle of his tail

Here you can see it somewhat better. Like I said, pictures really don't capture it well, it's more of a white/colorless color.

Regrowth probably. You said he had some damage from before? Goblins regrowth was clear.

It's definitely fin regrowth. :) It starts clear, then the color gradually fills in.

Here are a few pictures for you to compare it to:

Look at the bottom (anal) fin:

Look at the dorsal (top) fin and the bottom (anal) fin... All of those gaps of color on the top fin are filled with clear:
