Today, I notice a little white/grey spot on his top fin. Just a little one that's a bit hard to notice if you're not paying attention. So, I have no idea what it is. In the picture provided, its somewhere around that circle area, might be a little bit off, but it's some where near there. Anyone know what's going on?

premix salt in another container with tank water then pour slowly into filter current to distribute.

Okay I have a quick update, it looks a like a little black fin at the end, then it goes white. (Just a little) and its kind of hard to tell cause the betta fin is like a Royal blue.

Update 2: Came home today and notice something was really different about his fins. I saw him bite his fin and I stopped it and I saw one of the Ghost shrimp biting it also. But that was dealt with. But is it Fin rot?

Here is a video: Watch in HD please, better quality.
