Fin Rot?

I have noticed my VTs fins deteriorating, and becoming a bit ragged. I just want a second opinion on if it is fin rot. If so I want to catch it early. I haven't noticed him tail biting or anything, and he doesn't have any tankmates. I have had him for a month, his tank is kept at 80*, it is a 3 gallon and I do two 50% and one 100% change per week. His water parameters are all good. Here is a couple pics...
