I just checked on Fishy, his body is a light pink with bits of purple (Which is how he looked when I bought him) yesterday and early this morning his body was light pink with lots of purple. His fins on the bottem and back look fin purple with pink around the edges like he always did. the top fin is light purple and his tips and torn edges are clear almost instead of the purple with pink tips he used to have. He seams to of gotten lighter then he was this morning.

You should be doing 20-50% water changes weekly. When was the last time you checked water parameters?

I don't know what to tell you he's changing color but if it was actually rot you should see black/brown/red tips. Do you see any?

No black but he always had pink tips
I treated with water changes and AQ salt and his fins have started to grow back and he seams happy again.. he seams to be getting better. I'll post a pic later on today to show the re-growth

My inexpert opinion is either fin rot or ammonia burns. Since we don't know what your water parameters are, this is just my best guess.
Continue doing water changes weekly, and he should get better.

I love his bedazzled tank. Very cute.

It may be fin biting, but it may just be he bumped into that castle. He should be fine with the treatment you're giving him. He looks healthy.
