Exclamation Shrimp ripping off Goby's fins?

Could this happen? The cuts are very precise so that's why I am lenient to say fin rot. Has this happened to anyone else?

Doubtful those listed are to blame, though it is most likely from bullying behavior from somewhere.
Can you tell us more about the system and inhabitants?

Turns out it was minor fin rot. Cleared up now, with meds and stress coat!
