does my betta have a disease? (picture)

hey i was wondering if my betta has a disease? i recently acquired him after my brother moved so i don't know what he used to look like. when i got him he was in a tiny fish bowl and his fins were in really poor shape, so i moved him into a bigger tank and started treating the torn fins with aquarium salt (looks much better than he used to already but his front bottom fins are still healing) but i'm a little concerned about the weird greenish/brownish tinge his fins have. is that normal or does he have some sort of infection?
