I believe that it can be cause by anything from stress to internal parasites.  I would watch it for a few days / week and see if it improves or more symptoms show.  Hopefully someone with a little more experience can chime in.

I agree with Repteel on this one it usually is a sign of internal parisites and not a whole lot you can do that I know of. Maybe someone like Gary or Steve will have a better answer and a possible cure. On my fish it usually clears up on its own. By the way bright red stools are not good for any species fish or mammal unless you have just eaten beats.

The bloodworms you feed, are they frozen or freeze dried?
Just asking because freeze dried can cause constipation if you don't re-hydrate these first.

White stringy poop is usually a sign of internal parasites, there are meds you can get, you can also try soaking some foods in garlic juice (squeezed garlic). There are some who say it has helped their fish.

Long ago I had some platies who sometimes had such poops and they were fine. So, quite possibly it might have been stress related.

Its not every poop that is stringy and White. Its just all my fish in my 30 gallon are doing it every once in a while .i have platies and mollies 2 baby Platininum gouramis 3 small platinum angelfish and a few guppies .a few of thém do White string poo but not every poop.loll
I have flake food thats bright red and they poo reddish when they eat it.some times its red brown and when i give bloodworms its usually brownish whitish or even thats when i notice thé stringy White. Sometimes when i dont feed thém all day they still have little stringy white poos
