    Hello! I've heard that a healthy goldfish poop should be the same color as their food, but whenever I fed them bloodworm or veggies, their poop turns black/brown. When I fed them their usual pellet, on the other hand, their poop is pink, just like the pellet! What is wrong with them? Are they sick?

    I wouldn't assume that there is really any problem until it turns white or clear/cloudy and stringy. Does it cling to him/her for a long time, or do they drop off?

    It just drop off. The poop is not that long, only about 2 cm.

    Sounds healthy. I read on GFK that goldfish poop can be dark brown or the color of their food and either is okay. My ranchus tend to poop dark brown as does one of the goldies in my 29g, the others always poop the color of their food. I think your fish are probably fine, at least based on what you're saying and going off of what I read on GFK.
