splitting fins

Over the past two weeks I have noticed that all of my fish fins are starting to split. It makes my fish look really rough. I do water changes every Sunday. I also test my water, also had my lfs test it. Water looks good. What is causing this to happen?

I have 2 trigger fish, a pair of clarkii clowns, 1 tomato clown. One if my clarkii is battling with the tomato over a long tip anemone. But my Niger trigger I noticed this morning his left side fin looks rough. I had him in the tank for like 2 weeks. The other is a Picasso trigger. And I have a yellow tang

Thats a rough group (just like mine,a lot like mine actually)...chances are they are just mixing it up a bit..How long have they been together(besides the niger) and how big a tank we talking about?

100g. I think I need more live rock to create some hiding places and caves.

100 gallons is tight for 2 triggs ,,especially if its only 4 feet long...i have a 6 foot tank and will be upgrading to an 8 footer ....
Triggers need room ,,,and so does the tang..you can try adding more rock and see if that works..Do you plan on an upgrade ??
