I noticed that my mollie has an inch long string of something ( poop? ) dangling from his anus. Is this unhealthy, should I remove it?

As long as it's not white/clear it will be okay. Is it being overfed? That's usually when it occurs. It will eventually fall off.

Hi Kimberly, thanks for the quick reply. Not to worry about then. I feed them twice a day, morning and evening, a few flakes or dried bloodworms. They seem as happy and healthy as can be. Today is their scheduled pwc and filter change. Thanks again.

Well it's half red half orange, I named him Red. I learned he was male,like his buddy BW(blk and white) on FL of course. 15440169317681038869062.jpg

Oh well, newbie error I guess. In the LFS I read mollies on the tank . Should have id'd on the forum as soon as I got home. Love them just the same. Btw the dangly poop fell off, just like Kimberly said. A great thanks to all and a happy blessed Christmas too.

Stores will mislabel fish more often than not. It's quite sad really.
So I see, I even saw some dead fish in some tanks.Guess it's better to id from FL info just to be sure what fish it really is.
