    By the size of the bite in the tail I would say one of the frogs did it. The frog might have matured or just been hungry when the platy swam by and got chomped :)

    Healthy fish can regrow their tail and fins without any problems. Just monitor the wound for infections. If it goes white and fluffy it has a fungal infection. If it goes red then it has a bacterial infection. But the fish should be fine so just monitor over the next few weeks.

    If it goes red or white and fluffy or even if you are just concerned about it, post another picture and we can check it for you :)

    ---------------------
    Make sure the frogs are well fed and do regular water changes. And if anymore fish get bitten then move the fish into another tank. :)
