My third betta. Maybe a marble?

This is my third betta who I got from Petco. It looks like his top fin is torn right down the middle. What should I do to help him with that? I'm thinking he may be a marble, do you think he could be?

The split on his dorsal fin will heal with clean, warm water. :) and yes, he looks like he will be marbling some more.

It will heal over time but if you're not currently using aquarium salt (not sea or table salt, this will kill him) you can add that to his water. It will speed up healing, keep away infection (usually) and it's also great for the gill function.

tannins from Indian Almond Leaves, naturally fallen and dried oak leaves, betta spa, or blackwater extract heals fin damage really well, but honestly, clean water is good enough. :B its' all i use most of the time.
