Weirdest Platy Poop I have ever seen
Folks, take a look at the video I linked below. I don't know what is going on, but all my other fish are doing completely fine. When I looked at it today, it is moving around and eating just fine. It does have some odd colored poop from time to time, but not as out of the world as this. I fed it some mashed green peas to help in case it was going through any trouble. Notice the odd bubbly texture all the way towards the end, what the heck is that? I don't think it's an air bubble because it stood there the entire time the poop was clinged on to him. I feed all my fish a variety of different food, but as far as flakes it is either Ken's flakes or New Life Spectrum.

Internal parasites can sometimes cause thing like this to happen, although the color of the poop would typically be lighter
You might want to consider treating with a anti-parasitic med if the peas do not help

What are you feeding? It doesn't look much like an intestinal parasite symptom to me.
