Exclamation Question - black gunk

What does it mean if a betta starts developing blackish gunk on its fins and body? is that what the signs are of a stressed fish or is it something else? Im worried.

Hmm... as far as I know they can ge blackened edges in fin rot...

But it is hard to say unless I know a few things:

-How big is your tank?
-Cycled or uncycled?
-How often do you change the water?
-Ho much water do you change?
