I just looks like a blown fin to me. He should heal up from it fairly quickly, nothing to worry about. He was probably flaring at something and got a little too excited.

You are talking about the rips in his dorsal fin right? XD

It generally regrows over time, like I said it's nothing to worry about. Just keep an eye on it and keep the water just a little extra clean and it should heal up

I don't see why not, go ahead and install it for him. The tank should cycle in around a month, which keeps the water extra stable for him :)

Here's a guide about it: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=107771

He's very pretty! Yep, he should be fine in extra clean water.
