Constipation Or An Internal Parasite?

    Okay, so I need some help in verifying my goldfish's stool.

    Gross I know, but please bear with me!

    Today I've noticed a thin white string attatched to the normal coloration of my goldies stool. It was only towards the end, however, it was quite long. I know that white stool could perhaps mean internal parasites, but I wanted confirmation before I medicated.

    So far he is still highly active and being quite the little beggar. Although I know that symptoms can occur almost overnight in some cases.

    I am still establishing my cycle but I am neutralizing the bacteria with Prime and adding Stability as well. So far, my parameters are:

    Ammonia: 0 ppm
    Nitrites: .50 ppm
    Nitrates: 10 ppm

    I hope my information was clear. What does it sound like to you? Constipation or internal parasites?

    Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
