Finally saw the little het poop today and it looked white and stringy. He was fed epsom soaked pellets for 5 days and the full treatment of general cure (48 hrs small wc and another 48 hrs).

What the heck ?

Could it be mucous? I wouldn't think they would have parasites after the general cure.

White stringy poop sometimes comes with stress as well. A shedding of the stomach or intestinal lining.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

That is possible the little guy is constantly fighting with the argentea. Ordered the nls hex anyway. Would feeding prazipro soaked pellets help ?

Prazipro is already part of General Cure.

To really see if it goes away, you need to separate them to reduce the stress.
