Hello everyone, I purchased 2 Female (both were pregnant), and 1 male swordtail today. Both females had sort of transparent poo coming out of them which then dropped in the tank. The pictures are the same as this: http://www.aquariacentral.com/forums...tail-tangerine
Anyway, they don't have it anymore, and my tank has had the "Nutrafin Cycle" product put into it on Christmas Day, Boxing day and on the day after boxing day.
Anyway, they are currently swimming around and sometimes trying to eat things from the driftwood. I also noticed white floating snail things and was wondering if the fish may have intestinal parasites. I was also thinking that it could be stress.
Please let me know if the fish will be okay, and if there is anything I can do ASAP. Thanks!

I know little to nothing about parasites, but I do know that when fish are stressed, such as adding them to a new tank, their waste tends to be a translucent loose string, while healthy, unstressed fish tend to have a tight string of brown waste. Both are completely natural, but the brown color can waver depending on what you feed them.
