Does my betta have fin rot? (Pics)

I just noticed today that my betta's fins look tattered as if he has fin rot... He is acting completely fine with no odd behavior, and he's eating normally (sometimes getting bloated.)

Before:




After:



I recently got a baby panda cory about a week and a half ago and he suddenly died this afternoon, and I didn't notice any sickness beforehand... he was acting completely fine beforehand. I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Any input? I also think I notice in person that he's a lot paler than he used to be.

It looks more like tail and fin biting to me. If you look at the edges where it's white, that looks like new growth. But since you had another fish in with him that died, I would keep an eye on him. But that really doesn't look like finrot to me, but there could be other issues that are causing him to bite.
How big is the tank and how often did you change the water?

The baby panda's tail had been eaten away when I discovered its body (the tail was basically gone), and baby snails were crawling all over it. :/

I have two other fishes living in the same tank - another panda cory and an albino cory (I got them all basically around the time), and they're in seemingly good health... so I was hoping it wasn't any disease going around. It's a 20 gallon tank with a 100W heater (82 degrees) and I do 25% water changes about every couple weeks. Definitely a bit more relieving if it is indeed fin biting, but still a concern. Thanks for the reply!
