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.
