Gray streaks on tail fins

I just noticed this on my angelfish. It wasn't there a day or two ago. Is it a disease, or something else? I've had this angelfish for about two years and haven't seen this before.

I've used this forum to ask about "inspired" ideas I've had, so here's another one: Can I use a canister filter as the return pump for a sump?

The water path would be tank -> sump (under tank) ->...

It is plugged into a timer, but I'm not sure I understand the rest of your advice. I've tried plugging it into other sockets with the same result.

led flickering/strobing

I got a Marineland Double Bright fixture about two years ago. A few days ago, it starting strobing (turning on a half second every 5 seconds) when plugged in. Any ideas on what broke or how to fix...

Looks like a good start. You should get some filter material from your dad too. Relatively little of the bacteria lives in the water.

How big is the tank? Also, led's are not all the same. You probably will just have to try it and see if you get too much algae.

Too much co2 can kill animals, especially snails. I would lay off...

Looks really nice! Nerite snails are the best, useful and cool looking, especially once they get big.

I have the double bright 48" on a 75g. I've had no trouble with my plants growing, though I have a co2 setup. I have gotten a grass like plant to cover an area of the tank. It's probably low to...

Dropsy, fat fish or ?

I've had this fish for over a year and he's looked like this the whole time. He doesn't really swim around with the other zebra fish and just searches the substrate for food all day. At one point I...

Luckily most of my fish were still in the main tank (I was setting up a temp tank for moving).

Keeping fish is tricky, and unlike a dog or cat you don't need to screw up much to kill them. I...

They were a breeding pair for several months. I'm going to try separating them for awhile and see if that helps.
