Fin Rot or Fin Growth?

Hi.
My Betta fish, which is a beautiful Red Double HalfMoon Tail, has started to show a clear tip in his fins. What started out as a few mm has now turn to a cm worth of clear tip. I have read this is fin growth. I'd like to make sure he doesn't have fin rot.

that sounds like regrowth to me. IT usually starts out as clear or slightly whitish, it will colour up eventually.

Yup, Silverfang is correct. Clear to whitish for new growth, black and crusty/flaking for rot (some rot can have tufts of white at the tips, but it won't look anything like what you are describing but instead hanging off the tips).

Rufio Before

Here is a picture of when we first got Rufio, you can see the HUGE difference in clear tip! I'm so happy to know that he's growing more fin. That's so cool!
