genetic mutation????

I wrote a couple of days ago about my siamese fighter whose fins seem to be shrinking. I took the advice given via the forum on unhealthy fish.
Read the articles suggested. Read up on fin rot. Doesnt look like fin rot, no white edges, fraying or damaged looking areas.
Had the water tested, it was good, no problem there.
Moved fish into smaller tank.
Removed methylene blue from water.
Fish is still the same, seems quite happy, eating and moving around as normal.
Man in aquarium told me it doesn't sound like fin rot, suggested that maybe the fish is undergoing some kind of mutation, possibly genetic?
Has anyone heard of this? Sounds a bit weird to me.
Was also told that Cambodians are weaker than other fighters. Is this true?
