What's going on with this guys fins?

Yesterday I saw this guy at my LPS and thought his fins looked really crazy.
Anyone know what's going on with him? My only idea is that he's actually red and his fins are curling, but you guys would know much more than I do.

You should post this picture over in fish diseases, my guess would be a bacterial infection.

I've seen this before, many times. It's blood at the tips of the rays. He has ammonia burns. My CT was like that when I first got him. All he needs is clean, fresh water. Do daily water changes and add API Stress Coat to the water. He'll recover within a week. :)

It's part of finrot, reddened or black area's are both considered rot. Treated the same way with AQ salt and some clean, warm water as Kiara pointed out.

That poor boy needs a good home, I hope you can give it to him

I was hoping it was something easily dealt with :)
We haven't got him yet because I was wanting to see what was wrong first, but looks like I have no choice now :D He's certainly a cutie.

It's easily treated. My CT boy healed quickly from that. His fins will have to grow back a bit, but getting him out of that cup will do wonders.

THats what I thought when I first saw him too :P then I realised he probably had something wrong going on.
Do you guys think he will colour up yellow? There were quite a few his colour but we have a lot of bright yellows in the shops right now. I'm pretty new to bettas so I know bugger all about colour changes :P

he looks cute, and I know it is not good for him but the red tips do make a unique look for him Glad it's something that can be easily dealt with and that he'll be finding a new, good home. :)
