Disintegrating fins is common with ich. This is not true fin rot, though visually it looks like it might be with white edges and disintegrating fin.

The ich cycle lasts up to a week, the increased heat speeds it up but also kills it. Keep the temp at 86F or above for a full week.

I talked to the guys at the LFS and they said it could also be the other fish nipping at him. Its the one with the most noticeable ich which could also be the "most stressed" i.e. weak link. according to them, what do you think of that?

A photo (if it is clear) might give us a hint. But fin damage can be due to several things.

The tail has since healed. I appears it was a symptom of ich possibly.
