Tail rot?

Hey folks I have noticed my mandarin has a place in this tail that looks like a chunk is missing and today I noticed another. Any suggestions or treatments?

If its a chunk it probably another fish biting it. Suggestions would be remove the other fish.

I kinda thought it was another fish but I only have two clowns and the mandarin and they rarely get around each other. Looks worse this morning seems like it happens overnight. I have cleaner shrimp snails and crabs would they be doing it?

Crabs are possible. Clown fish are possible.
