Thank you all for your advice. The two betas are doing better and I have not seen any continued fin reduction. I am now sure that the issue was nipping and is not fin rot. My major concern is to prevent the chance of fin rot or any other complications the fin nipping may have caused. The two betas are swimming around like normal and eating well, one is making bubble nests the other is not yet.
musho3210 neither has gotten over the divider, it is clear plastic with holes in it. The two fish do display from time to time but have lots of vegetation and each have a cave to relax in. The beta who was first subjected to the ravenous tetras is the more submissive or relaxed of the two, yet is the one who has not gone back to bubble nesting since the removal of the tetras. I think that he may have been quite distressed and will take a little longer to recover.
