Often fish will 'nip' or bite off parts of the fins. Or you may have fin rot. If you only have a few (3-4) fish, they may be eating each others' fins. If your fish look sick, they need to have some medicine. Or if they are being kept with other fish or crabs or crayfish, they might be losing fin to them.
