That sounds more like rot. A lot of bettas do that in those little cups. the same treatment works, though :)

fin melt isn't actually melted fins but it kinda looks like they are melted together - like this

pic jacked from this thread

He could of also been bitting his fins in his cup as well...
Anyways, for bitting, fin rot, ammonia burns - the treatment is still the same - clean, warm water with AQ salt if you wish to use it

Well, whether we call it sympathy purchase or rescue . . whatever! He's cute, he will be happier and healthier now, and I wish you luck! Please continue to post pics and let us know how he's doing.

EDIT: disregard me being an idiot, i just read that he was from petsmart, not walmart.
