My Betta, Riley, has developed fin rot. I can't figure out why, and I'm not sure what to do about it. Suggestions please!

P.S.
He lives in a 2.5 gal, not in this fishbowl.

He could also be biting his tail out of boredom. Either way, it needs to be treated or else he will get an infection. Try some Jungle Fungus Eliminator or a SMALL dose of Melafix. If you do melafix, don't dose with the amount they call for. Melafix is supposed to be harmful to labryinth fish, so I use it in small doses just in case. Add some aquarium salt as well. Don't forget plenty of water changes as well.
