could this be fin rot

I noticed a couple of days ago or about a week and a half ago that superman has like 3 little dots in his fins. Not ick, but its like holes, u can see right through them, they are real small, could it come from the ghost shrimp's little pinchers or could it come from a plant, but all i have are live and silk plants, which shouldnt cause it. I dont know what it is im thinking fin rot but i want to be sure before i treat the community tank.

10 gallon tank
Fish: Male veiltail betta, Chinese algae eater, one Pleco, 3 Ghost Shrimp and 3 Zebra Danios


2.5 Gallon
Fish: Male platy.

Rest in peace to jaws the rts, and bubblegum the betta

yea the holes are deff fin rot. u want to get some kind of medication and treat him. get something mild as bettas are sensitive fish. u might want to move a betta into his own tank to treat him so u dont ur other fish

people have told me to treat the entire communty tank bcuz the other fish could still become infected. is this right?
