Some will treat the tank, but if you do that then you should treat it for the entire tank,...

Hi there!
Those actually are nipped fins. It's common for indoor goldfish to do that, no matter how friendly they seem to be.
How big is the tank and how many goldfish?

You could do Corydoras Habrosus or Pygmaeus. Pgymeaus tend to be middle-swimmers which may turn into a snack for the Betta if they intrude on his/her territory at the top of the tank. Habrosus are...
