hi ive had my goldfish 4 days and yesterday his poop was white and stringy and long ,bit like dental floss.then after a while it was more normal poop.
has he got an illness of some sort and i fso how do i treat it
thanks im a bit worried
The cheapest and most effective is garlic. You can buy a jar of crushed garlic at the grocery store. Take a little bit of it and water it down just a touch. There are a few ways you can treat him with it. Soak his food in it , feed the garlic to him( you may have to grind it up a little smaller), or pour the garlic juice right into the tank. Every once in a while I will dose my fish with it as a precaution.

hi on wed i tookm a sample of poop to the vets
the nurse rang me back on fri a fish vet had looked at it
she said it was nothing to worry about it wasnt parasites or infection and that its diet was too high in fibre
i think she meant to say it wasnt enough fibre in diet.as i have been feeding pellets and flakes both are high in protein.
its belly is a little swollen thats why now im thinking my fish is constipated, the white string is still happening and i gave my fish some peas yesterday and his poo was green later.
so today this morn it is white stringy again, i am not feeding my fish today and tomorrow will try peas again,
so any more advice i would appreciate thank you
could also maybe im feeding my fish too much and should cut down
also would i be better making my own gel food and not using flakes and pellets ,or a mixture of both.
i got some crushed garlic from asda yesterday could i add that to the gel food thanks
Use API "General Cure" ...easy to use...Metronidazole and Praziquantal both in one powdered dose. Use exactly per instructions on packaging.
I use on rare cories and puffers when I get wild ones shipped direct ...seems to be very good
DO MORE WATER CHANGES...
