Black edges can sometimes indicate fin rot or it can also be a sign of new fin growth or just normal pigment......with fin rot-usually you will have some frayed edges, edges that are somewhat curled or crusty looking, sometimes behavior changes like clamped fins, poor appetite but not also varies with reason for the fin rot, how bad it is and how long etc.....pic would help....

If you change your water/clean your tank often, the chance of getting fin rot becomes GREATLY reduced. However, it's still possible. Here's a picture of a case of fin rot.
