It should be ok because it's so small, but you need to find out what's causing it and fix it so it won't get worse.
How sharp are those plants?
water parameters?
Tank mates?
How often do you do tank cleans?

when my fish started having problems with their fins fraying or literally disappearing… The only thing that worked was daily water changes. Or at least every other day. I like to add a little bit of Melafix which is an antibiotic that helps fin regeneration, but the easiest and most reliable way is daily or by daily water changes. Hope that helps!!

It looks like someone is biting the tails. Monitor them and find out who the culprit is and remove them.

If the tails start to look infected, add some salt. Use 1-2 heaped tablespoons of rock salt per 20 litres (5 gallons) of tank water. Keep salt in there for 2 weeks.
