My fish might be sick :(

I've been a little worried about my HM Rusty G. He was in a 20 gallon tank but due to the divider my other HM got over to he's side and didn't so much fight but he harassed him. So I had to move Rusty G. Into a small tank. ... Well I take a lot of pictures of my fish for my friends to see. Well I took a picture of him a few days ago and saw he's tail fins ( I'm new to owning beta fishes so forgive me if i sound stupid) there are starting to turn gold. here a pix I thought it was Velvet but some of the sign of it he doesn't show, just the gold fins. Do you have any ideas what it could be?

It could just be his colors coming out :)

Velvet looks like gold dust on the fish's skin, you can use a flashlight to see it better.

Hi Sherlock23,

Your Rusty is a handsome boy! I don't see what you mean by gold fins. Is it possible for you to take a really close up photo of the suspected area. The current photo I do see some color differences on his fins. Since you said that he just had a close encounter and was harassed, it is likely that he is still recovering from stress, and stress can alter their coloring somewhat.

How is he acting now compared to normal?

Hope he feels better soon!

Is he acting like he usualy does? If he is it may just be fin rot. Do his fins look like they're getting shorter?? Or uneven in places?
