white growth

I noticed that Squirt has developed some weird white growth at the edge of his fins, and by that I mean most of them (he's a crown tail).

He doesn't seem bothered by them.
They look white and fuzzy like tiny cotton balls.

Any help?

Hmmm it could be...

But it's kinda fuzzy...

If it's fin rot, then that's going to be okay, since I need t use AQ salt for Pudge soon anyways

Here is some of his white fuzz


I just did a 50% water change and put in some AQ salt. I'm not QTing them because both need the AQ salt, Pudge for his fin and Squirt for the fuzz. I'm hoping that the fuzz comes off. I saw some pictures and it looked like the beginning of fin rot, so I don't want to take chances. I can't imagiine it spreading to Pudge somehow and he has tail biting and fin rot... :/
