    Default Strange poop from guppy , is this some sort of disease?


    0 Not allowed!
    Today while feeding, I noticed that a guppy isn't coming up to eat. She's just staying still and pooping; normally, all fish drop whatever they are doing and come up for food. So this is very unusual. Then I noticed something unusual about her poop, like a white ball hanging.

    Please see pic.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    could be internal parasite. How long have you had the guppy?

    I don't know if this guppy was part of the initial male/female pair (which was purchased a year or so ago) or the recently-added male-female pair bought 3 months ago. (The newly purchased guppies grew quickly to the size of my older guppies and have the same colors, so hard to tell them apart.)

    This guppy (at least I think it's the same one) is staying near the bottom and separate from the other fish. I'm considering removing her from the tank (which means killing her as I don't have any other place to put her) to save the tank.

    Thanks.

    Parts of this guppy's tail seems to be missing now and she's much thinner.

    Can you purchase some clove oil? I find its the most humane way to euthanize a fish. Instead of a container like video state, I find a ziplock bag with some tank water and the clove oil works well. Zip up the bag and shake until the water turns cloud-r milky like the video says. Open and place the fish inside. Zip back up and let it do its thing. I usually give about 15 minutes to make 100% sure the little one has passed before I toss the bag and fish. the oil is very hard to was off hands (nets containers...etc.) so I try to keep the handling of the oil to a minimum.

    Thanks. I'll go look for it.
    This fish is just hanging by a thread and must be suffering.
    The other fish in the tank looks normal.
