    if it is consistently white, could mean internal parasites.

    Crispy's got it. Long white strings is internal worms. Fish poop the color of the food they eat. You need to get some PraziPro and treat all the fish in the tank which should be done anyway. Fish can carry worms all their life, diminish their life and health and we would not be aware they even have worms. Just like puppies!

    But that tank is not going to work for those Oscars for long. One should have a mininium of 75 gallons alone.

    That tank is WAY too small for the fish that you have in there now. You will need a tank of over 125g, maybe even 150g.
    Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.
    2 Dachshunds. Angel (Red) and Cookie (Chocolate Dapple).
    Shiny Things and Beauty the rabbits.
    RIP Princess and Max the Dachshunds, Tiger and Ping Pong the rabbits, and all the fishes from when I was a newbie.
    It is Ldoerr NOT Idoerr.

    Absolutely correct. And, just to agree w/ everything else said here, that tank is WAAAYYY too small for what you have. From what I can see, looks like a 46 bow, not a 60, which is even worse. You have enough fish in there for a 300 gallon tank, let alone what you have. Overcrowding stresses out your fish, which leads to disease, so I'm not surprised that your fish has parasites. Get a bigger tank or cut back on what you have.

    My tiger oscars had white poo like that and wouldn't eat at all figured it was internal parasites and treated them with tetra parasite guard and cleared it up in a week!
