Cherry Barb Nipping?

I have 4 cherry barbs and 3 guppies in my 10 gallon tank. For some reason one of the guppies is missing half of its tail fin, do you think the cherry barbs wouldíve eaten it? Heavily planted, too. 3 female cherries, one male, 2 female guppies, one male

It's always possible with any fish even your other guppies nipping at him. Could be there's something wrong with that one, maybe sick, and the others will nip at him. Look him over and watch how he acts.
