grrr.....

I was at Pet smart today and was looking at their Sorority tank they have!! it's really fun to watch the girls and they are all so cute. :D So, there was a GORGEOUS purple one which I would have snatched up in an instant, if I hadn't seen that she had white stringy poo. Waaah... I really wanted another girl too, she would be PERFECT to breed with Wolfie! PERFECT I tell you!!!! So, my question is, Parasites are contagious right? So the other girl probably had it too? I really don't want my other girls to get sick, and I don't have an extra tank to QT. them in ATM. :( I guess it's not a good idea to get them is it?

I never knew white pooh was a sign of a parasite. If any of my fish have had it, it clears up in a day or two. Most of the time the fish are acting completely normal. And no one else gets it...

its usually not a parasite, just something wrong with the digestive system which should clear up soon. You should buy the girl, and put her in a tupperware tub for a day or two and see if it clears up
