Fish poop

i have a black damsel that has a long string of poop stuck underneath it... i believe it is poop.... why is this.... Another question i have is that i have had really bad luck with fish this is my last attempt could there be something in the tank itself...... this time i have took the whole tank down took it outside rinsed it off and let it sit in the sun a day and i set it back up had it running for 3 days got a domino damsel(the one poop stuck out it) and then a day later i got a blue damsel with a yellow tail and he started turning white and never ate and then today 3 days later he died..... what is going on with my tank i got everything tested and it all checks out..... PLEASE HELP SOMEONE

That will explain about cycling your tank without fish.

Take your fish back to the LFS and cycle with a piece of raw shrimp.

you can buy live sand which speeds up the cycling process also a panther grouper eats and poops alot so they can help out the process as well. the LFS actually bought my giant sized panther grouper just to use him to cycle tanks.
