Hi again!

I went to feed my fish this morning and found that my moor was having the long stringy poo again, but this time it was pretty white on the end. I looked at it closely and I don't think its egg poo (Usually the poo is clear with the white zigzags it seems).. I can't get a good picture since the only camera/phone in the house is acting up :(.

She seems to be acting ok so I'm not too worried but I'd like to be sure...

I tried to feed her a bit of garlic and she spits it out. I tried hiding it the Repashy but she'll eat around it and spit out the garlic :(. Any advice??

Thanks guys!

If I may add a suggestion: Instead of feeding the garlic in chunks, try to make garlic water and make the repashy with that. My thought is that the garlic chunks might be too much for your fish. I know my Hoover doesn't like his garlic in big hunks, but loves it when I soak his food in the garlic water. Elvis is the same.

To make: take your garlic and squish it into a paste. Cover the paste in water. The amount of water you need will be dependent on how strong you want the water to be. Let this sit for one to two hours, also depending on how strong you want it.
