Hello! Back into Betta

Hey! I'm Jed, and I'm getting back into caring for betta! Years ago in highschool I had many fish but by the time I graduated I had given most away and lost a couple :C. Now I'm starting over again and I've recently acquired a male VT I've named Kafka (after a book I'm reading- Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami)! I guess I've forgotten how fun these fish are. Kafka is always curious about what I'm doing, and he's an active fish who's fun to watch!

Anyways, here's a pic of my new fishie! I'm a little worried that he may have some fin rot, but the dark edges around his fins are blue, not black like in the picture, and he has more blue trailing up his fins! So for the moment I'm just keeping an eye on him.

Thanks! Though I always feel I have more to learn. He's also the strangest colored betta I've ever seen! I'm looking forward to any possible color changes he'll have once he becomes healthier.

Thank you, glad to be here! Phew, that's a load off my mind! The majority of the poor little bettas at the Petsmart where I found him had fin rot! The few who didn't looked like they were recovering from it or had some other issue! Crazy thing is though that the little cups the were in are some of the cleanest I've ever seen.
