5 week old platy fry feeding

My platy fry has a long string of brown poop that hangs down and it takes anywhere from 5 minutes and much longer for the poop to fall down. Is this a cause for concern? Is he constipated? I feed them 2x a day, 7am & 7 pm. A tiny pinch of excellent quality flake in the am and brine shrimp in the pm. Am I feeding them too much? I know itís different for fry because they are growing. Thanks.

The fry are eating up a storm and acting naturally... they did have a minor case of ich that took about 10 days to clear up, but nothing in the last 2 weeks.
