Tang Fin Problem

The fins on my Yellow and Blue Tangs are disappearing/deformed (see image). They were OK when purchased and over the past 2 or 3 months I have seen this problem. There is no indication of a problem other than the fin condition, they are peppy, eating well and I have seen no discoloration at the fin. There is discoloration on the belly of the Yellow Tang but that may be normal, I don't know but doesn't seem to be associated with the fin if not normal. Water chemistry is OK (except nitrates a little high) and have a Cyano problem but it's being addresses.

Any idea what the problem is, what is causing it and how to remedy it.

Obviously I will not bring back the missing fin but I want to eliminate the cause so it does not progress.

How big is your tank? What other fish live in there? They could be getting harassed or stressed from other inhabitants or not enough space?
