Oh I see.Yes I think its a bite.Male beardies shouldnt be kept together.They are very aggressive and can and will fight and sometimes even to death.It does look like an injury not a bite.I would get him to the vet if at all possible.You dont want to have it get infected and have it travel up his tail.Bites can easily get infected in the meantime I would soak the tail a few times daily and put the neosporin on it 2x per day and if possible keep it covered.I also recommend you seperate them asap as the aggression can and will progress.If you keep it clean and get him to the vet the tail may be savable but I cant say for sure.
