Unhappy my betta fish is loosing colour in one fin ? help?

i recently bought a betta fish from my local petvalue. i moved it into a regular fish bowl and added the conditioner. it was fine the first three days but today i woke up and saw little flakey looking things in the water. then i noticed colourloss in its top fin. it is still very active and what not. but what could this be? what do i need to do? help!!

How big is the bowl and how often do you do water changes?

Watch him for a couple of days, if he gets worse move him to a 1.5 isolation tank. Do 100 % everyday in the isolation tank and treat him for any illnesses if you see one. You could go to bettatalk.com and go to the illness section to identify any illness.

I personally think he is fine but would keep a close eye on him in case his behaviour changes.
