Edges of fins black.

Hi :)
This is not betta but instead guppy related.
My guppy "Jaws" has some black coloring on the edge if his tail fin.
His tail has always been a bit ragged on the edges but there was nothing wrong with him.
Im not sure if its because his fins are growing out more or if its somthing else.
Maybe you can help?

Its a 1 and a half gallon with a little filter, i do a 100% change once a week, i think the tanks to little for small water changes, and its not much work for me to rinse everything and fill it back up.

well guppies usually do better in bigger tanks and as a community... try adding some aquarium salt but I would consider getting a bigger tank....

you're also not doing enough water changes for such a small tank. Clean water and a bit of aquarium salt should help, and like bettablue said, a larger tank with other guppies would be better for him as well
