Tail turning clear

Hi everyone,
So I have a white iridescent double tail male. And lately, he's been losing his tail whiteness. I thought he has tail rot at first, but then i realized his actual physical tail wasn't leaving, it was that the white was fading out and now the tips of his tail are completely iridescent and clear, you can barely see them.

Is this something I should be worried about, or is it part of him color changing in a good way? He acts fine, eats fine, he has gained some color on him since I got him from the store, he's got a little more black spotting but the clear white tail is confusing me.

Thanks!

Clear tips usually means growth..Maybe he was biting without you noticing and now they are growing back?

Well, he's always had this part of his tail, because when I got him, he had a full white tail. I checked my fish every single day for tail biting or fin rips and diseases and he never had chunks missing from his tail. I have NO idea! Maybe he just has a clear tail? haha
