Does anyone have any insight as to what could be causing this? They don't appear to be aggressive toward one another so I've ruled out nipping.

I really don't think it's fin rot as the larger of the two has had this look to his tail for over a month and it's not getting any worse.

Could their tails be getting ripped by any objects in the tank?

Also, these are common goldfish which require much more water volume than 30 gallons.

There is nothing jagged in the tank at all. Only one small cave type decoration with round edges. And yes, I am aware that the tank isn't big enough-- I got both the tank and the fish before I leaned that though. I have plans to get a larger tank or to relocate them to a pond soon but I want to be sure they are as healthy as possible so that it is a smooth transition for them.
