Having problems with discus

I have had my 5 discus for almost 2 years now and had no problems since the last 2 months. I don't know if I just hadn't noticed or it just got worse but all of my discus are nipped fins or fin rot. (Very slights but some more then others). They are all acting normal for the most part and eating fine. There are still 2 Phantom tetras left over from the cycle that might be nipping the fins. Anyone else have any ideas?

Temp = 85F
pH = 7.2
Nitrate = 0-2.5
Nitrite = 0
Ammonia = 0

Does ur fish's fins have white on its edges? Are they acting different? If there is no white and they are acting normal, I wld assume its nipped fin and put some melafix in the water
