White stringy poop is a sign of internal parasites. Cant really say anything about the fungus without more pictures. How long have you had this pleco? Any other fish added to tank recently?

Hate to say it but this sounds like a very sick fish. I wouldn't expect it to live much longer.

ive had the pleco about a yr or so and there is an angel fish equal in size in the tank also...I haven't had any new fish but I did have a gourami die not too long ago...I put a tablet inside the tank that is supposed to kill any virus, fungus or any type of parasites and the pleco is lookin a lot more active...ill take pics at some point...
