What does a fish poop look like?
Most of the time, you’ll barely notice this mucus coating because of what your fish eats. The mucus is stretched thin and you’ll see a mush similar in color to the pellets you feed. If your fish has not been eating, you will only see the mucus. This is the “stringy, white fish poop” in fish.

Do we drink fish pee?

Can I eat my own poop?

Do fish drink the water they swim in?
