Guppy with stringy poo. White and brown

Mindy3

Just this one guppy for the past two days has had stringy poo hanging from it. Yesterday it was brown. This morning it was whitish and now it’s brown again. Does this seem like an infection? If so how do I treat? Do I treat the entire tank and is it something that could pass to my baby snails? There is a UV filter in the tank so hopefully it’s not spreading much. I’ve only had these guppies a couple of weeks. Also pic of the dumbo eating spinach for good measure.

Is the fish upside down in the first pic? If the fish is upside down then there is something else to worry about more so than the poop.

If the poop was white but now its brown then thats fine. Nothing to worry about. If the poop is white and not brown anymore and he's not eating then there is something to be addressed.

The best way to know if your fish is healthy is if it eats....then it poops. Dont jump to medication yet.

No the pic was just a weird angle! Lol. The poop is back to brown last time I saw any. The fish is acting normally otherwise. Thank you.
