Tail biting or fin rot?

Blitz haseither been tail biting or he has fin rot! I cant tell wich one it its, but i think its tail biting. His tail will look like its healing then be in shreds a day later.

I'm not too sure of which it is but either way you can treat both diseases the same way. Just to be safe, you can move around all his decor; then just treat for fin rot so his fins heal back. You can add 1tsp per gallon of AQ salt and increase your water changes so that his water is very clean and promotes fin growth.

It might - most plants don't tolerate salt too well.
