Stringy white poop


Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Ben, I'm new to keeping fancy goldfish. I just bought 2 juvenile (about 1.5") fancy goldfish from 2 seperate stores and put them in their home, a 29 gallon tank. I noticed the first day the blackmoor's poop was white and hanging about an inch and I saw the calico poop fine that day. On the third day the calico started having the same issue and was significantly less social... I've been watching  all the videos and reading all the forums so I thought with what I've read and watched that paracleanse was something I needed to use... I dosed last night and within a few minutes my calico seemed to be having issues keeping level. So I of course panicked and did a 50% wc and ran a charcoal filter to pull the meds out... they're both still kicking but definitely not as happy the calico is noticeably less social and the black moor now looks like its showing signs of ick..... HELP...
