when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have

Tail biting I'd assume.

Can you get a picture of the tank? Sometimes a betta will nibble on their own fins, stress can bring on this kind of behavior. It's possible that he is getting bent out of shape over having very active zebra danios in the tank with him.

Danios are too hyper for bettas.

Ok, He was bored.... I changed his tank around and added stuff, now he also has a guppy tank next to his so he has someone to watch, I tried to se what he thought of my cherry barbs, or neon tetras..... not a big fan of being in a tank with fish,but he loves watching them from a dif. tank! :)

Yeah, putting him next to some other fish for him to watch may help.
