Shredding tail . . .

Ickis has started shredding his tail.. I took out the only plastic plant I have incase that was it, and it wasnt. He has spent most of his days just swimming back and forth at the front of his tank.
Well when I cleaned his tank last Sunday, I left the power of the filter a little higher than normal. normally it just trickles a little bit. he is SO much happier with a little bit of a flow in his tank. I am hoping that was the fix to his boredom! when I had it higher set before he seemed scared.. now he LOVES it! =]

Should I be doing anything special since he has ripped out quite a few chunks of his tail?

Maybe try adding in some aqua salt to help with the damage
