Shaina I cannot tell if it's actual rot, or just some biting, do you see some black at the edges? well, if so, the AQ salt treatment is best, as I am doing with my 2nd rescue fishy..he's only on his 1st day..but try that, and do the 3-4 day treatment --see how it goes, if you see improvement, and keep us updated, hope it goes well for your new lil guy!! He's gorgeous:)

It kinda looks like biting from the circular chunks missing. I've had a few fin nippers, two being double tails. My one took almost half of his lobes off. Eventually he stopped with the right decorations and IAL water. The other one I rescued from petco that had chunks missing due to stress from shipping. He's in IAL water too and made his first bubblenest and his fins are healing great. I'd say do the salt treatment and if you can add IAL too or blackwater extract. He's beautiful colors.
