i think it's fin rot?

i'm not sure about it though.

the first picture shows him flaring. looking at the anal fin(bottom fin), the edges are smooth and it has a point at the end.

then next picture, you can see that the point at the end is gone and the edges don't look as smooth anymore.

i just wanted to make sure with you guys that it is fin rot.
i've been treating him with aq. salt & stress coat since tuesday, so 3-4 days already?

The pictures arent too clear so i dont see anything. His fins could be growing in. They change shape slightly as they do. Dont overdo it with the salt. No more than 10 days. Last thing you need is kidney issues.

it could be rot, or it could be natural colouring. Unless his fins start to shrink and disappear I would cut the salt and just keep the water a bit cleaner (maybe an extra WC) just to be safe.
