Possible fin rot?

I got my betta about a month ago and the other day I noticed his tail fins were different than they were before. Is it fin rot? All his other fins look fine. He seems as healthy as ever (he just started building a bubble nest) and there's nothing in the tank that would rip them up so I'm not sure what to do. Thanks in advance for any advice

when I got him


now

It's hard to tell with the quality of the photos, but if the ends are red, brown, black, gray, or look to be thinning/dissolving that is rot.

More info is needed: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=49233

Sorry about the lack of information. He's alone in a two gallon tank with a filter, I keep it around 80F, and the water's pH and ammonia are fine. He's been eating normally and his behavior hasn't changed at all, he's still swimming around and building his nest. There's no red/brown/black on the edges of the fin and it doesn't seem thinner, it just looks torn up.

Still not enough info. Can you please fill out the guide?

It might be getting caught in the filter too or he may be biting but i can't determine everything else is ok from that
