Sounds like your fish has diarrhoea *english spelling*

Are you feeding the bloodworm or any other food frozen? Do you defrost it before feeding?

If its not that then take a look at the fish and see if its bloated and any swelling or redness around the vent. You should starve the fish for a few days to see if that clears the problem
