    Ok, so I've noticed for a while that one of my Goldfish have stringy, white poos along with regular movements.

    I'm feeding them NFL Thera+ so they are getting good quality food that has the garlic additive.

    Behavior seems the same...Fish hasn't been acting out of the normal.

    My question is, if it is a parasite, what can I do to aid them??? Seems like most of the meds I've researched are no longer sold and I cannot find medicated food at all.

    Parasites are pretty natural. Healthy fish can keep them under control, but weak fish that are stressed will start to lose the battle and then it becomes a problem. Sooo, healthy fish can and do have parasites, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't treat them. I would treat with prazipro. It doesn't kill the parasites, but rather it paralyzes them so that the fish can pass them. Then you vacuum them up.
