    Hey! My name is Robert. It seems my Silver Dollars which are brand new, just came from the store, are pooping long, pink strings that stay in their butt for a very long time before dropping to the bottom of the tank, where my cories slurp it up. Is this normal, or is it just the food the fish store was feeding them, or was the fish store overfeeding them? Please reply, thanks! :-X

    hehehe sorry that way you described that was rather funny :D I think as long as they have poo coming out it means they're ok but if you're worried it cant harm to try them on some veges. My fish eat cucumber, lettuce, zukini/courgette and they LOVE mushy peas too ;D Enjoy!

    It was probably what they were eating. As long a their pooping and not bloated I don't think anything is wrong ;)
