I hate to disagree, especially since black edging usually screams fin rot. But I have a boy with similar colours, his fins and tail are rimmed in black, and it's natural colouring. Since it is so hard to tell feel free to use the salt treatment at a low dose, but what you really want to monitor is if the fin length is getting longer or shorter.

When my boys missing piece of fin grew back in it looked like the black edge was growing, only getting thicker. But the overall length of the fin was increasing, if that makes any sense.

He looks very handsome, I might have to steal him :D

Sorry to bump an older topic, but I noticed something different about Bertram today and didn't want to start a new thread on the same fish.

Anyway, Bert's been living in a gallon bowl on the kitchen counter, and I've been doing the 100% water changes with aquarium salt every day for the past week.
Tonight, I had him in the cup one of the crowntails came in so I could rinse out his bowl.
Anyway, I was checking out his fins, and since it was such a small space there wasn't anywhere for him to go so I could see him a lot better. I noticed that his body and a bit of his fins are turning a really pale pink/orange-y color. Is that a normal thing? I didn't think they were supposed to change colors.
