Excessive pooping
 
I have two female platys in a 20g. its 7 weeks old. I feed once every other day. 3 days ago i fed a bit of nls pellets. The smallest platy has been pooping nonstop since. Its usually white and doesnt look like worms or parasites. It just looks like poop. Has anyone ever seen this?

Is the feces segmented or solid? What are NLS pellets?

Feces is solid, not segmented. Nls is new life supplement pellets. I fed spinach tonight and 30 mins later it turned green. Otherwise, she appears healthy.

I wouldn't worry about it unless she starts behaving differently.

I have read that white poop is leading to birth. Does your platy have a gravid spot or a square/ enlarged stomach??

Her stomach is not enlarged and though Ive tried, Ive never seen a gravid spot. Shes fast and I need glasses so I may never see one. This is days later and Ive reduced feeding. Shes the first to go when I do feed. Otherwise shes healthy. They've been doing a lot of heing and sheing lately so i assume all is good. Thanks.
