If his Fins get smaller, he probably has Fin Rot. As long as he acts Normal and not Lethargic, he's going to be Fine. :)
Male Betta Fish can go with some Tropical Fish such as Neon Tetras, or Platies. They just can't go with other Male Betta Fishes. Female Betta Fish can live with other Females but, you need at least 4 of them since they are just as aggressive as their Male Counterparts. Male Betta Fish have very Long Fins. Female Betta's have short ones. He's very Pretty! ;)

Don't worry. Most Pet Stores take Bad Care of their Betta's. If his Fins did have Fin Rot and stopped getting Smaller, they will grow back. If the Water is Clean of course.

It is a very gentle process introducing other fish with male bettas
MOST VTs are docile and don't mind friends, but you cannot be too careful. Crowntails are one of the most aggressive bettas and usually don't handle friends too well.
My CT even flared and attacked his plant! O.O He tortured his poor snail. Ate his ghost shrimp. And lord knows what he did to that poor surprise pleco from hubby.

It is a process that requires your full attention and you to be home/net ready 24/7 should something happen.
Female bettas CAN live together but require atleast 20 gallons(in my opinion, most say 10 gallons) and a heavily planted with lots of hideys home.

About his tail, I think he looks more like a tail biter than a case with fin rot.
