Thanks :)

As far as the feeding.. I would up it to a minimum of 4 pellets a day on those, 6 max spread between two feedings.
Two pellets a day is not going to give him the nutrition he needs to be healthy and active.

Having more nutrition *may* help stop him from biting/eating his own tail.
Well, i used to feed him 3 but he was always bloated and his stomach was HUGE!! now that i feed him 2, his stomach is normal and hes not bloated. so ya

I can't see rot (I have recent experience with it, sadly, and this doesn't look like it) so maybe he's tail biting. I've read that tail biting is sometimes caused by boredom or stress - does your betta have a cave or soft bushy plants to hide in? Fake ones are ok, if they're silk. If he's got a lot to explore, he might make himself too busy to bite it.

Looks to me like there's a little regrowth happening already? Or is it just my tired eyes?
well theres nothing sharp in my tank. i have a real bamboo plant and a little sign that says "I prefer to live alone" but those are the only things in there. I also have an air bubble maker thingy in the corner. its inside of a clear tube if that helps.
