Exclamation Possible Parasites?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Hey guys! Sorry I've been so inactive lately. Schools overwhelming along with the little social life I have!!!

The problem is Firedrake! Out of nowhere in clean water he has thick stringy feces. What do I do?!?!?!

I'll be doing a 100% change tonight that's for sure.

Are there any meds I can give him in case it is parasites?

Hey! When was the last time he had a salt bath?
Do you think he could be cleared out with some garlic food?

You might try rolling his pellets in garlic juice. I've done that and it worked wonders. If it isn't parasites, it's still not toxic and boosts your fish's immune system.
