I've just noticed today that my moor's pooh is a redy brown colour, it's the first time i've noticed this colour, normally his pooh is ok, some times it's a little pale or a bit stringy but he's eating ok and swimming fine. I was wondering if his pooh is this colour because yesterday i fed my fish blood worm? But I?ve never really taken notice of my fish pooh before but I?m sure it?s never been this colour. Please put my mind at rest and tell me it?s just because he ate too many blood worms.

I really think its ok. It is most likely because of the bloodworms and if you feed any pinkish goldfish flakes it can be because of that too. Brownish red is just fine. Mine frequently poops that color:)
