tail biting help.

so just yesterday, my blue betta began tail biting.

and tonight, i'm sitting here watching him, /waving/ it while going in slow circles, as if he's mesmerized by it, /wanting/ it. how can i stop this? |:

his tank is a hospital tank, from when he had bloat. one gallon, heated and with a water lily.

Sometimes long finned bettas will bite their fins to feel better.

However, boredome CAN also be the cause
