    I take it from this post you are losing fish to whatever it is.
    I know this sounds bad but is there anus red and are they at all bloated?

    Thanks Tangster. It is mainly with the bicolor blenny and the saddleback clowns. That is the only two that I have seen this with and they are now in quarantine for other issues as well.

    No red around the anus and not bloated. I am dealing with oodinium and now trying to figure out what else is wrong.

    im sorry senario you just cant get a break in saltwater can you.

    i think it is a internal parasite. stringy poop could just be over feeding. but the fact that its white tells me its not digested hardly at all. so the fish is responding with diearrhia trying to purge the parasite. i would try a standard parasite medication.

    if there are any food dips i would think there most effective.
