Try soaking his food in garlic juice. What you can do is cut up a a thing of garlic into small peices and then add a little bit of water and boil the garlic and water. Voila! Garlic juice. It's anti parasitic (Sometimes tail biting comes from parasites) and bettas love it!

Sorry for your loss...
I don't know about the garlic juice, but Oldfishlady recommended oak leaves for my crowntail's tail rays and they worked really well. I'm not sure but maybe oak leaves would work for your case? If you're reading this Oldfishlady thanks for helping!!!! He's already a lot better!

I'm curious, when Oldfishlady says oak leaves, does she mean green ones from the tree or old brown and dead ones on the ground?

Dry, dead ones on the ground that have fallen from the tree. Just make sure they're taken from somewhere there are no pesticides used! I have a lot of oak trees here but my townhouse gardeners use pesticide on the lawn.

Firekidormaru: No, I'm pretty sure you let them sit in the water until it becomes almost like a tea color.
