They may be getting shredded form the filter inlet. Try putting panty hose over the inlet.

For now I would move him to quarantine and treat for fin rot.

does fin rot generally shred the fins?

Yes it does. Sometimes it can be pretty nasty. I agree with what neenjar said.

soo i think i may have figured this out. i bought two matching decorations...looks like a cracked pot...and put one in with megatron and one in with voodoo...now voodoos tail is showing shredding. i think its the pots. they dont seem to have any sharp edges anywhere and i cleaned them before i used them...soo im gonna take them outof the tanks

Sometimes decorations don't necessarily have to be sharp, they might have rough edges and that could tear fins.

Do you have plastic plants? They can damage fins too
