it's a strange question, but i've had my rbp's for 2 years and have never seen them poop, nor seen poop at the bottom of the tank. I've been raising different fish for over 20 yrs. and have always seen them poop or seen the poop at the bootm of the tank, but never my p's. It must come out like liquid. I only feed them catfish nuggets. Has anyone else noticed this??

Dont worry. ive had red, sanch and mac and never, not even once seen any of them poo. neither have i ever found something that can be ID'd as poo in teh tank.

Dr.Giggles posted a pic of his marginalus ( i think) pooing. looked alot like most fish, long thin thread of crap.

I see mine from time to time, though usually the other fish in their tanks eat it up or eventually it rots down in the gravel or gets swept under my plants.

It doesnt look like "normal" fish poo in my mind though, it is usually just smaller pieces, no long trails like you will see coming from some fish or plecos.

I have also seen my ps sh*t from time to time. The stuff is thin, wriggly, and has a pale pinkish color and is preceeded by a "fart". The poop is actually quite small in relation to the size of the fish. Nothing like the large globs produced by oscars.

I've seen mine do it on numerous occasions. As a matter of fact, it seems that they frequently poop when I approach the tank to feed them. I've assumed this to be caused perhaps due to excitement at the prospect of eating and stimulation of their digestive system? Or maybe they're just so damn happy that they could just poop.
