No, not fin rot. She said his fins got caught in the filter. And you shouldn't do 100% water changes in a cycled tank. You should also remove the filter if you aren't going to cycle the tank

I have a 5 gallon. The recommended water change for a cycled tank is 50% a week, but I believe you are right that an uncycled tank needs 1 50% and one 100% a week.

50 percents weekly are for ten galons.

5-9gal with a filter
Weekly 50% with vacuum
Filter media needs a swish/rinse in old tank water a couple of times a month.

Directly from the water change recommendation thread.

Thanks for the info guys! But how will it grow back if the ripped off part is still attached to his fin? Will he have it forever or will it just fall off?
And what is the average amount of time for his fin to grow back?
He is eating now and is happy

Many fins will grow back but he may show damage for the rest of his life.
