Just a thought here; in order to rule out the tank being a contributing factor to the aggression, you may want to put him in a different tank and see how he behaves. My betta, also has what I believe to be the same condition as yours, but he is a normal acting happy fish. I did not know about the medications to treat this so, thank you, forum contributors.

Perhaps not fin rot.

I mentioned that my betta, his name is Fish, had the same thing happen. At first I was concerned but decided to watch it. It progressed to a point like your pictures and stopped. Again, he is a healthy, happy Fish. I wonder if this is normal aging for a betta. I noticed that your buddy's issue is very uniform just like Fish's is. I would expect to see something different with fin rot. Perhaps this just naturally occurs when they get older and bigger. Fish is about 3 times the size from when I got him out of that tiny cup. Of course, I am no expert. Just wanted to share my experience with this.

Just... no. It's a 3.5g, so already stocked, zebra can be nippy and need at least a 20g because they seriously like to swim, and like cooler water, so would not do well in the temps bettas need.

I think he just needs more time to settle, I'd add a few more plants to break up sight lines any reflections.
