i have 6 tiger barbs and one of their tail fins is gone but i can't if it's fin rot or if they're nipping it so I've got a couple pictures of it, they're not very good pictures so if you can't tell i might be able to get better ones but these are the ones i have right now.

To me, from what i can see it looks like fin nipping. Is he the only fish that this has occured to?
Is the rear fin the only place where he's lost some fin?
Is there any white around the edge, or is it just a clean cut? (does it look like it's peeling anywhere on his body?)

most of the other ones have just a little peace off the edge and their is one that looks like it's pealing a little.

You really should up the numbers of your tigers to 10+. From my experience, once they're in a nice big shoal their aggression practically disappears.
 
Maybe the plastic skeleton is scaring them.
