Kim I need help. I'm gonna scream. I thought it was parasites but now today I have at least two fish with white stringy poop. Will I ever get to stop medicating. I am terrified my husband is going to flush all my fish because of how much medication I've had to buy. I'm trying so hard to do everything right and they just keep getting sick.

I had posted a few days ago. Not sure you want me to go over all of it again so if you can find my post, maybe we can figure this out.

Am I gonna have to treat for bloat now?

White stringy feces doesn't always mean bloat.

Let me read through the other thread when I get the time and I'll get back to you!

Okay, I read through the post.

The thing that keeps sticking out to me is your stocklist. That's pretty overpopulated for that size tank, so it's going to be a high stress tank...Stress leads to illness and problems like you are having. I would give serious consideration to removing the red zebras and going with just the Yellow labs and demasoni. You would be able to add a few more of each of those two species, but you just don't have the space for 3 species, and those estherae can be brutal when confined to too small of an area.

Are all the fish eating now? Any of them being reclusive?

Have you lost any others after losing the demasoni?

What size are all your fish?
