Before you start medicating...
What kind of food are your feeding? How much are you feeding? If the poo is not mucousy it may not be parasites. one of my guys got bloated pretty often due to the food I was feeding (mixture of Wardley's, Aqueon and Hikari). I was primarily feeding the hikari, however. They recently changed their food around and added MSG. Apparently he couldn't handle that. He also had clearish/whitish poo while he was constipated. Now I feed Ken's Crumbles and New life Spectrum and he is fine. Have you tried feeding them 1/2 of a blanched pea to see if it clears their systems?
Edit: Ajones, my guy who had the problem also poos a big wad of poo and sometimes normal string poo (like playdough being pushed through a spaghetti strainer). This is ok. It's when you start seeing mucous coming from them that it could be parasites. But it could mean that he is having trouble processing the food.
