Slight dark edges on the fins

I was reading about fin rot and I'm kinda a little worried now because I see dark edges on the tip of my betta's tail. I don't understand how this could happen since I keep his water changed regularly. If this is fin rot, what is the best way to treat it.

Post a clear pic of the area in question and we can take a look....

Not all black edges are bad or rot...sometimes its normal pigment/coloration of the Betta-usually with rot the tips will look crusty, discolored and ragged...

New fin growth can look-white, clear, black or the base color of the Betta

Oh, okay. Oldfishlady, I only have my phone as a camera for now and it doesn't take good photos, however, that doesn't sound like what I'm looking at. Might just be his normal pigmentation. I just remember reading something on it and thinking, please don't let this be him.

Hehe. My little guy is flaring at me right now. Guess he can't distinguish gender in humans.
