    I see what you are talking about and Tbh i see one spot that kinda looks like fin rot. Best thing to do to and be on the safe side. Water changes every 1 or 2 days. That way if it is you'll catch so soon you wont be able to tell he ever had it. Water changes work wonders believe it or not. I thought you had to buy medicine and treated water and all that. I believe it was @TexasDomer that told me water changes are the best treatment unless it's a serious case of it.

    Oh! and pretty betta fish by the way :)

    I don't see any fin rot, but I could easily be missing it. It wouldn't hurt to do frequent water changes the first few days/weeks he's in your care, just in case.

    Yeah I might change his water every 2 days for the few weeks And add salt to help him out if it is fin rot mind you his in a good tank good size heatered/filtered just hope it's not fin rot starting

    he is a good looking half moon

    I wouldn't add salt, but agreed, lots of water changes in a heated and filtered tank should help! Salt is not necessary, and may do more harm than good.
