Poop Question
« on: December 12, 2010, 06:17:19 PM »

Is it normal for there to be a really long clear looking pooh that is attached to a normal looking poo? Sometimes Momo has clear poop followed by normal fish food color poop. How sad is my life, I'm  watching my fish poop today.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

I've seen that with my goldies sometimes too - i'm not sure why??? Maybe because of different foods passing through Momo's system?? Not sure  Lips sealed

LOL! Usually the clear poop is a sign of maybe an digestive upset?  Ya know, like diarreah. Wink
I would watch the poo for a few more days and see if it doesn't settle down.  It might be because the fish were stressed by the move. Smiley
If it continues you might want to treat for parasites, since it can also be a sign of internal parasites or worms.

well you weren't off that far! Wink  Certain foods that goldies aren't use to might cause a temporary digestive disturbance. Smiley

I also can imagine as their poop is "wrapped" like a sausage, their f.a.r.t.s may be too.
I don't think it is unusual for a fish to pass some wind  Tongue  Grin

"Clear poo strings" are called casts, and they may sometimes occur if the fish are being kept in a tank with sand as substrate, but also as Minde said, a sign of parasites or problems in the digestive tract Smiley

LOL, Minde, I had to laugh too, but at the same time it really happens that their air is trapped in this string... LOL
Nossie, good on ya, very scientific, I like it  Wink

And yes, it is true, clear poop or white poop can be a sign of parasites or digestive problems. I always watch our fishies poop and you do it too, this is very good.

It's funny that you mention farts because I could swear I saw a few bubbles coming out of his butt. He pooped a lot yesterday and the last poop I saw was so long. His name is Momo the champion master pooper  Grin. His poops are always different and I find it changes with how much and what he eats.

Hanna: lul, scientific Tongue (I'm trying hard not to sound like that again xD)

Sometimes air is expelled from the swim bladder through the vent when the fish is going down in the water, it's one of the ways to control the buoyancy Wink

I can't remember seeing that though o.o

*tears are rolling down my face I'm laughing so hard  Grin  It is true they do appear to be 'gassy' at times. I had assumed it was because during feeding they took in a bubble of air that got swallowed instead of blown out their gills. Mr. Tailer has laid some cable that fits this description - air trapped as bubbles or just clear wrapped in a see thru tube Wink Oh my gosh that image is burnt into my mind, I'll be laughing all day I'm sure!

I haven't seen them "bubble" Wink But I did see some bubbles in the... poo D: Earlier, when I kept them in the smaller tanks.

It was creepy seeing it hang by the surface with them bubbles attached xD

Yeah, I'm not sure HOW the sand is "changing" their poo, I just read that it's common when keeping sand as a substrate Smiley
Maybe they sometimes swallow some of it when it's so small?

When I feed those algae pellets (green) their poop is green too, same colour.
One day when I was sipping my coffee, Matilda had a fair garland hanging out her butt and Humphrey seeing green nibbled on it pulling Matilda back... the coffee I had in my mouth I sprayed all over the kitchen sink. Shocked Roll Eyes

I know, they bit it off as it's coming out, spit it out and then say "oh look food", and suck it back it only to spit it out. It's gross but so funny.

Oh my goodness! I think the worst Ive had come out my nose was soda pop. You think a nut stings? Soda pop burns your eyes and your ears as well as your nostrills.. XD and yea, Tiger's a little poop eater, its funny

Hanna: I know the feeling, I was so worried when Tiger and Sonorus were pooping little green poops, but I ruled out that it was probably they're diet. Tiger absolutely ravaged my plants. XD
