Hello. Generally a sign of internal parasites. I use Hikari Prazi Pro liquid. It is very gentle, can be used for multiple rounds and won't hurt your biological filter. Just make sure to remove any carbon etc first.

You can treat the whole tank. It's a good maintenance medicine anyways as it treats flukes at the same time which is so common among fish.

From what I have read, for fresh water fish meds for internal parasites need to be taken internally . Please correct me if this is not true.

Hi, Prazi Pro treats internal worms
It works really well and must pass through the gills. I've used it for the same thing myself and within about 48 hours the white parasitic poop goes away.

Besides external flukes it treats tapeworms, flatworms and turbelarians.
