The fins seem healthy. It just looks like that the black is part of his natural coloring. Fin rot will look something like this. http://www.petfish.net/articles/pix/arts3/finrot.jpg

Well, he passed away this morning. :(

Thank you for telling me how to treat him, though. I'm pretty sure he had Dropsy and that's what killed him because his fins actually started growing back very slightly.

I do want to mention by the way, that after the speaker fell into his tank I immediately cleaned his tank and began giving him some Ich treatment because I had noticed white spots on his head. I think it was around this time he began to get more ill and I didn't notice until I saw him in bright light and noticed he was losing his color and his fins were a bit shorter, but by this time he was already pineconed, and that's when I posted on this forum for help.

I will miss my little guy. :( RIP. <3
