possible fin rot...?

I am very worried about Natasha ( I know it's a male.. It's such a lovely name though) I bought him from the Pet Store 3 days ago, and after some research believe he has fin rot, and just tonight after I added a new plant he seems to be acting funny... suggestions? I have pics, and will post in a moment.

It is not uncommon for bettas to come home from the lfs with fin rot and/or a number of other issues. The best treatment I've found for fin rot and other bacterial & fungal problems is a combination of methylene blue and fungus eliminator used together for 10 days.

If you need step by step instructions, let me know and I can talk you through it.

That would be great, I am very emotionally invested in my fish>.<
