First time I run into something like this, trying to figure out what I’m dealing with. So I have a 3/4in red oscar, that has something coming out his anus. It’s enlarge kinda looks like stuck there. Can’t really describe it and getting picture is hard when he keeps thinking I’m feed him. The closes things I came up with is he is heavy eater and ate some frozen mysis shrimp today and somehow ate so much is coming back out with out digestion.

Or the other thing that sounds like this is Camallanus worms but they don’t look like the pictures I seen. And that particular fish has been with for maybe 4-5 months so doesn’t seem like could be that. Honestly don’t know he seems healthy just maybe overate?

Its common for fish to have different looking poop when eating different foods. I would keep an eye on it and see if he passes it
