Torn fins (Spotz or anyone who can help me)

in my quarantine tank one of my three botia modesta, has rips on all his fins it is a new injury he was healthy when I got him. The only thing I can figure is that the larger one is beating up on him I thought he was chasing both of the others equally but it is hard to tell them apart. So I don't know. But the thing is the larger one is not that much larger than the other two but he is the one with the most attitude (three second in the bag at the store he poked two holes in it) And he has claimed the huge PVC pipe in the tank as his and will not let the others in and if they innocently cruise in front of it he chases them. I don't know what to do, maybe three is a bad number I thought about five when I first got them.

I don't have another tank to put him in except for a little 2 gal my gramma let me use. Should I put him in that, or just leave him, o
