Fin rot or tear?


Recommended Posts

I just noticed a tear on my goldfish's tail. I can't tell if it's a fin rot or a small tear. There's also a small piece of his tail dangling near that tear so I'm not sure if fin rots can do that.1634577153_ScreenShot2021-04-03at9_23_06PM.thumb.png.4d6718413d68dfe3f938ec4c530a406b.png
He's eating well and is very active and I do not know what could have made the tear. The only thing in my tank (80g) is a filter and two air pumps. 
Temperature is around 60f
I also have 3 other goldfish living with him
