Possible fin rot?

I’ve had this red wag platy for about 6 months. My tank has been doing very well with only one death about 3 months ago. Last night I noticed that one of my platy’s tail looked very beat up, but the day before it was perfectly fine.

my water parameters are all good. I make sure to test every few days.

my tank is a 10 gallon tank with 4 female platies. I do water changes between 2-4 weeks and I don’t over feed. I make sure they eat all the food and if there is any left I take it out with the net.
I have attached a photo of how the tail looks? Could this be fin rot, or am I just overthinking it? Maybe one of the other ones just got a little nippy overnight?

Could you share the actual water parameters?
Also it’s hard to tell from the photo. To me it almost looks like something is sticking off of the tail, maybe another photo might help. I would also recommend doing water changes weekly, this will help overall water quality, which is often the cause of fin rot.
