helpppp!

so, i just adopted a new lil betta from a local pet store. he looked really neat in the blue water but when i brought him home and put him in his new bowl he looked a little funny.. well i mean hes VERY Handsome! but his tail is like a transparent black color?? I was reading a lot online and wondered if its fin rot . Im not sure how long he's been in his cup but it looked clean and well maintained. He also wasnt active in his new little house until I turned the flow down from the filter. & yes its heated. Also i was wondering if anybody could tell me what "breed" he is.! Thanks for your help!

P.S. HE has a white spot above his eye(is this normal?)! sorry for low quality pictures! best i could do!

The black on his tail is his natural colouring so don't worry.

Not sure what the dot is. Does it look solid or fuzzy? Could be anything from a tumor to a wound that has been infected, to something completely harmless.

Can you get any better shots of it?

Looks like a nice betta and set-up.

At the moment thats the best shot i have. Im currently at work but will post a new picture as soon as i get home! But thanks! (*AGHH*) sigh of relief! i feel better now. will that clear black tail gain more black or is his color/ fins full grown & fully colored? He's Small id say body around a inch and a half TOPS. most likely less

I reckon his fins are probably going to stay that sort of transparent black. Most bettas I have seen with similar colours online tend not to have solid black tails or fins.
