Advice needed Does this betta have fin rot?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...:X:RTQ:GB:1123


Does this female have Fin Rot?

The black edges made me think it did, I have mailed the seller who quite rudely told me It Wasn't fin rot, If I didnt like the appearance of the black round the tail , Then I had best not be buying their Betta's.

Any Advice Greatly appreciated Thanks guys,girls and aliens of the forums

I don't think so? Looks more like the coloration since it's all the way across the tail.

That's rude of her, though, to say that. >.> It's just a question, she should be polite no matter what you ask.

Looks like fin rot to me on her bottom fin.

With the uneven patches in it.

From her response, she probably knows it too.

For some reason the link is not working for me so I can't really express my opinion on the fin rot issue, but aside from that, what a jerk. She at least could have attempted to come up with some sort of explanation--some fish do have black edging to their fins naturally, in that case you go by texture and whether the area looks irritated, but she's just making herself sound guilty.
