Parasite or poop or something else?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My tank community tank just recovered from a bout of Ich and everyone was looking happy and healthy. Now today I spot this stringy thing coming out of my Cherry Barb.

She's the only one out of all the fish in the tank that has this. Is it some kind of intestinal parasite, poop, or something from laying eggs maybe? My male barbs have been displaying much darker reds lately, so maybe there's some mating going on? Hoping it's nothing too serious.

White stringy pooh can be a sign of parasites sometimes it just pooh with out food in it  I would monitor for now  if your fish start to lose weight or rub against things in your  and continue to have have white stringy pooh   then I would treat for parasites with paracleanse in food
