Yep. As long as he's not lethargic or there are red or black edging against his fins, it's not fin rot. Baffle, though. DT's have a harder time swimming than other types because of all their finnage.

It depends on the water conditions. Clean water, 1-3 weeks or so for a full tail. If he keeps on biting, there's a small chance it'll ever be full lobes again. :( Tail Biting is annoying, but harmless unless they bit too far.

It might but they produce a lot of ammonia so it's kinda a risk. D: Maybe some shrimp? Just put in some more decorations or plants for extra cover. Bettas tend to eat them so start out with 2-3.

Well, an ADF needs 3 gallons per frog. I'm still not sure it's fine in a 5 gallon tank. Well, there are tons of shrimp! Ghost shrimp, red cherry shrimp, amano shrimp, etc. Red cherry and ghost shrimp are better. :) Lebron ate all 4 ghost shrimp that I put in my tank so good luck!
