Im not completely sure its fin rot. Is the only reason you think that is the clear tips of the fins, because when a betta fins grow the tips grow out as a clear to white, my Snowflake has hadcleartips to hisfins since a week after I bought him. Im sure if it was fin rot Id of seen more advanced symptoms by now. Just letting you know, gives you something to think about.

Just comparing his fins now, to what they were like in photos, they have definitely gotten less "attractive". more of the fin is turning transparent, where it was once bright red.

also, small portions of the edges of the fins are darkly colored, almost black.

If you are unable to find any of the Jungle brand fungus treatments, I am currently having great success with kordon brand Rid-Fungus.

i'm fairly sure at this point that it's dropsy. in the last day he's gotten slightly chubbier and i'm starting to see the scales are just barely lifted.

hasn't eaten anything in at least 2 days.

If its dropsy, I'm afraid there really isn't anything you can do for him, except keep him comfortable and warm.

Okay so here comes my fin rot question. It looks like Fishy is getting Fin rot. =(
Now I won't be able to get stuff till Tuesday when I get his heater. I already wrote down recommended stuff. Now should I use a cleaner and aquarium salt. And if I use aquarium salt, how much??
I'm probably going to treat him in his 1 gal...should I put any decorations in there? How long does it usually take to heal (like how long till I can put him in his 3 gal again.) .... who knows maybe I'll have the 10 gal by then.
Sorry, this is making me nervous. I don't like it.
