But I thought I'd start this section off!

Silly question but I'd like an answer if there is one.


My Black Moor fish is constantly pooing - and I mean CONSTANTLY!! It has a continuous stream of poo dangling from its rear end 24 hours a day. About 3" long, when a bit breaks off it is replaced by more, like some sort of pooey conveyor belt!

I thought it might be constipated although they do get veggies once a week, but I gave them a bit more just in case - no difference - so now I am going to starve them. They are normally fed a small amount of flake once a day.

The other Goldie is not doing it so I dont know why the black one is, and for its size it is quite excessive - any ideas?

Lovely. I was just having my breakfast too... hahaha

Maybe cut down on the feeding a bit, Diana and see if that sorts it out. I only feed my goldies every other day and I haven't noticed this...yet! :lol:

My goldie's do this as well, two of them more than others, so far I have tried almost starving them and feeding peas etc but all that does is leave a green string trailing . So as they have been fine for the past 3 years I am now assuming that its just something some of them do.

Thanks for that Gypsy. I guess it's just something that I'll have to get used to looking at.

Unfortunately, after a rearrangement of my living room, my favourite chair is now right next to their tank! Wrong move there I think Crying or Very sad
