Question Stress or something worse...

I'm a first time Betta owner and I'm worried my new friend might have fin rot. He hasn't flared at his own reflection or at me or anything. I was hoping it's just stress and not anything worse. I'll be adding some java fern, aquarium salt, and decor once I know for sure he's settled. Maybe I'm just worrying too much, I get really attacted to my animals.

Not sure if these will here are the links. If anyone can tell me how to upload successfully, i'd be forever greatful.

Yep I think you've got some fin rot going on there. Please fill this out so we can assist:


How big is the tank?

Is it uncycled or cycled?

How much water do you change?

How often do you change the water?

Please try to answer these to the best of your ability. If you do not have a test kit, please bring a sample of tankwater to the nearest local pet store. They should test it for cheap, but most of the time free. Write the actual numbers down, don’t take ‘okay’, ‘low’ or ‘fine’ for an answer.
