im trying to find out whats causing the fishes fins to split it happened to my sailfin tang and now its happening to my firefish.

the firefish has lost half if its front flicky up fin (sorry dont know the real name) and the rear fin looks like its split / torn.

the perams are all ok appart from po4 which is about 3ppm so ive just added a rowa reactor to sort that.

other perams are

sg 1.026
temp 28
mg 1320
ca 420
nitrate 0

other tank mates are

scarlet hawkfish (perfectly fine) shows no aggression towards anything
boxing shrimp
peppermint shrimp
sallylightfoot crab
unknown crab, little orange thing black claws
hermits
snails
possibly citrus goby

any thoughts

cheers
