Exclamation White thin stringy poo

Can anyone please help me. Some of my mollies and endlers seem to be passing white stringy poo and I don't know why. Help!

Sounds like an internal parasite. Check your lfs for foods that treat this disease. Jungle makes a medicated pellet food.

Or if the pellet food is too big for your fish to eat, there is a product called Gel-Tek that may also help. Do the fish look thin as well?

The fish ndo not seem to be losing weight although they are not eating as well as they have been in the past.

As mentioned it is probably an internal parasite. If they don't eat you can use a medication such as Jungle's Parasite clear. If you can get them to eat the geltek additive is the best IMO.
