Loaches with Missing Fins?

Lately ive noticed that a few of my clown loaches have little nips in their fins and some look like they are developing fin rot. I have started treating with melafix and have done a 25% water change.

I was wondering how they were gettin nipped. Is it likely that its the Barbs I have in the tank with them?

I was also wondering if the hyper nature of the tiger barbs is what causes my loaches to hide a majority of the time in their tunnel.

The loaches tankmates are currently , Rainbowfish, Ancistrus, Cories, Neon Tetras, Barbs, and Rams.

These are all in a 150 Gallon Planted Tank.
