    well I do believe it is a sign of an internal parasite but figuring out which one is the problem.

    well I ment it quite seriously. when I feed natural fibers it seem my fishes poo is stringier. algae and greens seem to do that. I am sorry but was just trying to be helpfull with some fun.

    Diet is mostly the cause Tangs and many other species like puffers when they eat to much meat protein they will have this problem . Get them on a good flake diet and more veggie matter. Also excessve over feeding will do this .
