some bettas do nip at their tale.i think 1 of my female did it to hers...really the only thing that can be done to help is like stress coat..or a little AQ salt to help relieve stress.another way of helping if moved to a new home is covering him with a towel or something or keeping him in a dark room with little disturbance.

They bite for several reasons

1) they are bored
2) misplaced anger/stress
3) because they can
4) their fins are too heavy and annoy them

If you can figure out why he is bitting, you may be able to stop it.

If he is bored, try moving around decor or adding something new. If he is doing it because he can - there sin;t anything you can do to stop him. Since he is a CT and not a HM or VT, I doubt its cause his fins are too heavy. I have had a few chronic bitters - all heavy finned Halfmoons. I have also had a few VT's bit off their fins because something was upsetting them - once it was the filter, the other did not like divided tanks

Stress coat will help fins regrow if he stops bitting.

Thank you for the advice :) He made through the trip nicely. His tank is all setup and everything. I did move around the decor for him although I feel like it was because of the filter. I had put it in the middle of the back of the tank which caused the current to affected the whole tank when I usually put it on the side so the other side would be disturbed by the current. Hopefully this will help him~
