Internal parasite

Hi so one my clown fish has always had white stringy poop which when asked guy from lfs says could be diet but now my cardinal has it and starting worry as never had a sick fish and ain't got clue how to treat. I feed different foods like algae flake,normal flake,pellet, cubes of mysis, brime plus blood worm. Feed cube once aday plus one other type. So any help would be great

I was told somewhere at one point can't remember where. Mysid shrimp are very high in fat and should be fed only a couple times a week. Might be related to the high fat content. Not sure just a thought. My fish are on a similar diet just less often on the mysid shrimp they have normal poop.

I'd see if that helps. I'm sure some others will have some ideas too.
