What are you feeding them, Ya? Could just be the food coloring. I assume all the tank parameters are perfect. Long as the fish is eating and acting like a goldfish I wouldn't worry that much about the poo.

i agree. if your feeding flake, depending on the brand, it could be the coloring. goldfish are pretty tough. good luck.

No, their really small round pellets, that float..When their swimming in the water, they tend to open and close their mouths, like their talking to each other, they do it ALOT.

And when I come home ( had to leave for 2 hours) I found it floating and when I looked closer, their were smal aire bubbles in it, could they possibly have just gotten too much air into their system?

Thanks for the responses.

It's possible they got some air in their intestines, but they have no problem voiding it. Again, if he's eating right and acting normal, is most likely nothing.
