Exclamation Ribbon's Shredded fin

My beautiful fish, Ribbon, is in teribble condition. A day ago, my poor veil tail's fin was slightly ripped, possably due to the filter. Today, after spending the moring with my best friend, I came home to discover that his entire top fin split in half. He swims as well as he did before the incident, as I like to say, he acts like a small, colorful dolphin.
What should I do? He's only left with 2 little strips, It looks like they are going to fall off!
A strip has fallen off. Did he chew it off? What's Going on?
Don't eat Ketchup for breakfast.

If it's on the top he didn't chew it. Can you share photos? More info would be helpful:

It could be the filter.. It's always a good idea to put a prefilter sponge on the intake tube of HOB filters because they have been known to suck bettas into them with worse results.
