No. I would expect it to be more so likely tailbiting due to his heavy finnagge. There is no guaranteed treatment, usually adding more decorations, and plants, upping the tank size, minimizing the flow, and keeping the stress level to a minimum along with changing a few decorations weekly or monthly to keep him occupied
Do you have any plastic plants or sharp decorations? This could also be a cause of the frayed fins as sharp decorations and plastic plants are notorious for ripping fins. Of you do have any, then ideally removing them and replacing them with silk plants, and soft decorations will result in minimal rips in the fins
