Unhappy Fin Rot, Tail Biting, Or paranoia?

Hello everybody,

After I first got my fish Nikoo I noticed his fins were a little dingy and I thought maybe it could be fin rot but the tips weren't black/red or anything and the damage looked like breakage. But recently I checked his tanks and his fins suddenly looked quite worse. I think it's tail biting but I want to make sure, and if it is tail biting or fin rot what should I do for my fish?

Housing
What size is your tank? 2.5 gal
What temperature is your tank? 76% F
Does your tank have a filter? yes
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? no
Is your tank heated? yes
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? none

Food
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? bettabites (I'm going to order better food soon)
How often do you feed your betta fish? once a day except for his fasting day.

Maintenance
How often do you perform a water change? Weekly 50% change and every two weeks a full water change
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change?
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Aqueon water conditioner

Water Parameters:
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters?

Ammonia:
Nitrite:
Nitrate:
pH:
Hardness:
Alkalinity:

(I haven't tested these in a while but last time we did they were okay)

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? frayed tail
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? none, still very happy
When did you start noticing the symptoms? noticed damage through the past three days
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? no treatment
Does your fish have any history of being ill? no

How old is your fish (approximately)? 5 months?

Thanks ahead of time, and sorry for the crappy photo, my fish doesn't like to sit still.

Looks like biting to me, but keep an eye on it.
