white string from anus
Boy I am really being tested with this fish disease thing-
I know somebody just posted about white stringy poop, but I wanted to post separately because in my case it doesn't seem like poop to me - it's coming out of a very pregnant platy and it just trails behind her while she swims - it never falls off.
I saw the same thing with a dwarf gourami during my recent tank plague, within 24 hours the gourami was dead (but back then I had all sorts of fish dying from all sorts of things, so who knows...) That was several weeks ago - there has been a quarantine and a 90% water change since.
What is this most likely and what do you recommend for treatment? I am leaning towards copper...
(It's a 30g cycled tank; although it just lost part of it's filtration and is experiencing a bacterial bloom (I added more filtration tonight) - so there have been small amounts of ammonia and nitrite which I'm staying on top of, but the fish are stressed anyway, tank is about 50% stocked, I may be overfeeding slightly, still feeling them out, 75 degrees, PH 7.5, I'm currently medicating for ich as well, have been doing water changes almost daily...)
I don't want to lose any more fish, I'll do whatever it takes, please help!
