I would like to know what this is called that is coming out of the tail of my Goldfish.  It looks like a string that is coming from the anal area.  It just keeps getting longer and longer.

It could be one of two things.  One is some sort of internal parasitic worm, which is not uncommon in aquatic pets. If it's just a parasitic worm problem , there are fish medications you can buy to get rid of it.  Another possibility is that trying to excrete some wastes , which can appear like what you are describing.   See if you can spot it wiggling around, if it is then it's probably an internal parasite.

It could also be stringy poo, which is a sign of a bacterial infection or poor diet or water quality.
