    So after giving my fish a large water change yesterday and remodeled their aquairum, their poo has suddenly become very long (like 5 inches) (the fish are roughly 3 inches) just now one of my fishes massive poops floated straight to the top which I've never seen! Food habits havent changed, but yesterday I put some tetra easy balance in the water to help with ph levels and I was shocked when this thick yellow substance came out. The fish gulped some of it. I did look it up and tetra said it was normal for the product and harmless for the fish but I'm still super worried!

    If the poops are of the same colour and texture as you usually see, and your fish are acting normally, then it's nothing to worry about

    poop can float.

    try feeding some blanched peas or food containing Spirulina. i feed mine Omega One Kelp pellets once or twice per week.
