Unhappy Is Proximo sick?

Hi all,

I'm super new to the world of Bettas, so your help is greatly appreciated. I've had Proximo for about a week and a half now. He is a red crowntail male. Today I noticed what I can best descripe as a droplet or little blob of something on the tip of one of his lower fins. I've looked at various photos of things and it doesn't look (to me) like fin rot or ich or anything I've seen.

He seems to be behaving ok...swimming around, flaring, looking at me, blowing bubbles....but I'm worried, any ideas what it might be? I'll try and get a picture later today.

Thanks all for your help thusfar! I googled Lymphocystis, and I dont think that's what I'm seeing. I tried to snap some pics, these are the best I could do.

NOTE: He does NOT live in the tiny plastic petstore container featured in this photo. That's where he sits when I am changing water, or in this case trying to get a photo ofhim.

While we're on the subject, he has those white (not cotteny lookign though) dots on the rear part of him. Doing agoogle searh for red crowntails though I see that in quite a few of them, is that normal coloring?
