Question strange angelfish poop question

Hi, I have 4 angelfish all appear happy and healthy. However I've noticed when one of them poops it's like it is wrapped in a membrane, almost like a sausage ( sorry you may never look at a sausage in the same way now). I've had it from young and is about 6 months old. Not sure if it's always been like this but has certainly been this way for a couple of months. Water is all checked and perfect and as I say everyone else in the tank is fine. Any ideas.

You might want to post this in the Disease section. I am not much when it comes to diagnosing problems so I will not even guess, but I would think something is wrong; one of our members with more experience in fish health will probably see this and offer some advice.

Is there an easy way to move this thread to diseases or do I just copy and past it. I'm not the most technical person :(

I'll move it, sorry, I should have thought of that previously. Byron.
