Okay, I have a 5 girl sorority and a couple days ago I noticed that there are no holes in their caudal fins, but that it looks like it because there are patches of fin that are kinda transparent. I'm just trying to figure out if this is from fin nipping or if I should worry. Right now all my girls have this a little bit except for my alpha.
Here is a picture if it helps.
Thanks in advance.
