platies... thing
At the fish store i saw a lot of platies with these long tube like things. It looked like they were pooping but it was connected to them. It is really really long. Can someone explain what this is?

it might have been the male reproductive organ? was it on the lower part of there body on the bottom side. the gonopodium? correct me if im wrong anyone.

no, it was longer than the platies whole body, much bigger than the gonopidum

Platty "thing"
Lol i thought the same thing. when i saw them then i read the tag and they are mix breeds of sword tails and something else i think.

Yes it was poo.

One of my blue platties is now trailing a string approximately 4 times the length of her body.
