As far as I can tell, the white/clear just looks like new fin growth. I may be wrong, but if he is behaving normally that is my best bet. If he's not full grown it's totally normal for him to grow more fin. I would say this is a sign that he is happy in his new home.

Thank you :) I didn't think it was, but I worry about him since he was a walmart rescue. I figure with nice upgrade from teeny cup to 3 gallon tank with nice, clean water, he should be doing much better very soon :lol:

Definitely! My walmart rescue ended up growing some fantastic fins once I brought him home. The first time I saw clear fin on one of my bettas I panicked and scoured the forums to find out if it was normal. Clear is good!
