torned clown loach's tail

I've noticed somthing strange about some of my clown loaches (2 out of 3)
At first, a piece of the tail was missing off one clown loach- like a triangle was cut off at the edge of it.
About a week after, i saw another loach with the same problem.
Then, I saw that the tail of the first loach had some kind of 'cracks' in it. It doesnt look like a fin rot disease..
The dorsal fin had some cracks in it too.
I think that now it's getting better, but I still have no idea how did it happend..
Maybe they fought among themselves and hurt each other?
The other fish that share the tank with them are Cardinals, Kuhlis, Ancistrus and SAE's, but none of them could've make such bruises..
Any ideas? :I
