dont worry too much hun. unless there is major damage they usually heal themselves in time. if you are worried you could treat but ive had this happen a few times and didnt loose a fish due to a tear. have you added any new fish lately? usually happens when mine reestablish the pecking order, or when one is ready to breed.
can it still swim well? if so then dont worry too much but keep an eye in case its being picked on.
