Good morning,

I am new to tropical fish keeping, i have a 55 litre planted tank that has been cycled for a month. I got a few guppies last week and one of them has a rounded stomach, there is no pine coning and it seems happy enough. I thought it could be constipated so i have beem feeding the tank blanched peas for 2 days. It has been passing faeces which is slightly stringy. Is there something i’m missing?

is the poop white or coloured?
Stringy white poop is an indication of an intestinal problem. Coloured poop is not an issue.

It could just be fat or have a bad case of intestinal worms. If it's still feeding properly and doesn't have trouble sleeping, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
