What is this?

Hi, guys.

I noticed Dumbledore has this...Odd coloring on his tail. I don't think it's fin rot, but maybe some healing/recovering from when he had it when I got him. I have 2 pictures, and they are blurry but I think you'll see what I mean. The pictures make it look orange, but they are more whiteish kind of color. The area is where he folds his tail if he's clamped, I don't know if that helps you at all. I noticed it yesterday when he flared for the first time, but I didn't really think anything of it until today.

If it isn't healing fin rot, what is it? Is it something I should be concerned about? How can I fix it? Thanks a bunch.

You can kinda see the whiteish streak in the middle of his tail



Here you can see it a little clearer. White/orangeish streak right down the middle.

Fin rot would usually start on the tips of the fins and work it's way down~

That looks like healing fins to me :3

Probably he's been flaring a lot and overstrained the tissue between rays.

So how do I get it to go back to normal? He gets very excited and sometimes flares when I feed him, but if it puts strain on his fins, I would like to keep him quiet. l
