Long fish poop?

I just went to clean my tank and noticed my 6in goldfish having a "poop" 3" behind it. Is this normal? I have never noticed them that long in the tack as I clean. TIA

as far as i know it is normal, it might be a little on the constipated side
my 4 inch pleco has a 10-12 inch poop on a regular basis... 8O

I'm only speaking from experience here, but it is very common in golds and plecos. They are very dirty fish! I suppose some might recommend feeding them a pea (to help with constipation) but my fish have always been healthy, but I have always had that occur with golds and plecos.

The only thing I would know is that if it gets very long then it's a sign of the fish being over-fed. If it doesn't trail for a long length of time, then it's fine.
