No, it does NOT look like fin rot, fin rot has dark edges.

Try using AQ salt 1tsp/gallon. should help grow them back.

Someone else might have a better suggestion

Yeah I think it probably is a color change. move him to whatever small tank you have available to make it easier to treat, I use a 1gallon. Put 1 teaspoon of aquarium salt per gallon in there, make sure it is dissolved before you add the fish, do 100% water change daily and replace the salt...10 days only. This will help to repair the fins regaurdless of if it is tail biting or fin rot.
