What are your water parameters? Size of tank? Type of goldfish?

Please answer those questions so we can figure out what is wrong.

White poo comes from stress or disease or bad water quality. Healthy goldfish poo should b chunky, not long and stringy. Goldfish need lots of veggies (up to 70% OF their diet is veggies).
