pygmy anglefish missing tail

I just noticed while feeding tonight that my pygmy anglefish looks like pieces of its tail have been picked off. The craziest thing is that it is the only fish in the tank righ tnow along with an arrow crab. could this be the work of an arrow crab or is this a disease that needs to be treated.
