The edge of the fin near the bottom look like bite wounds, they don't look infected at all but the damaged area at the top may or may not have a slight infection, but I don't think so since your fish has a lot of pigment in the black layer, it could just be new fin tissue starting to color up. Either way, this isn't a bad case at all. I think he'll be perfectly fine with nothing but clean, heated water and some high protein food. No need for meds.

Some fish do this when the pellet is too big to handle--they grab it, spit it out, grab it again to break it into smaller pieces. You should try soaking the pellets and breaking them in half, perhaps that will help. Some of them need time to get used to new foods, and some of them are just picky little brats--they all end up coming around when they start getting hungry. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

also is it maybe because we have him in a new tank, he is stressed out? I don't think he should be because as you can see above, he has lots of room to swim and a fair amount of decor
