Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? His fins have a reddish streak in them, and i noticed a few of his streamy strings had broken, a slight hint of black muck on the ends makes me think fin rot >.<

If anybody has any ideas about what it could be, it would be great to hear it! Im worried it might be bacterial septicemia from not changing his water enough in his previous tank. =/
