Doctor insights on:
Light Brown Poop
Pale stool color: Bile & your gut's bacterial flora account in large part for color & volume of stool. Absence of bile results in pale (acholic) stool. Lots of other things also affect stool appearance: ingested foods, medications (peptobismol, antacids), swallowed blood or bleeding from gut, infection/antibiotics, inflammation, maldigestion, & the amount of mucus mixed with stool, as well as transit time of food.See 1 more doctor answer

Unlikely related but: ...in answer to at least one of your concerns: Stool floats in part when it contains a lot of air or gas. Diet plays a considerable role in stool composition, but additional roles here are played by your bacterial flora, the effectiveness of food digestion and absorption, GI transit time, more. Exposures? Travel? Persistently altered bowel habits deserve medical attention & evaluation please.See 1 more doctor answer

Need more info: If all of your poops are thin and stringy, you need to get checked. If you had only one poop that seemed to have something like a brown string but you are fine now, it is most likely something you ate. If this experience of a brown string keeps on happening, someone needs to make sure you don't have parasites or something blocking your poops so that they are thinner.
Likely: Eating anything could affect the color and character of your stools. Tan and brown stool by far is the normal color, due to normal degradation of bilirubin in the digestive tract.
It depends: A clear poop could be some mucous, which can be normal in irritable bowel, a condition where there is may be cramps that are relieved by pooping, and frequent bouts of constipation or diarrhea, often with stress. Brown strings does not sound like a normal, formed stool. You should see your doc if there's pain, weight loss, diarrhea, or constipation, or if your stool often looks strange.
I have very dark brown poop for 1week but I don't feel any pain in my body. No pain during pooping too?
Brown OK: Dark brown is fine. It means that it is moving slowly and is absorbing a lot of bile to give it its color. If it is dark black and tarry- that would be a concern or if bright red blood is noticed that would require attention. As long as there is no pain and its color is dark brown- that is normal.
I have been pooping green for almost 3 weeks. Only having about three or four brown poop in that time.

Conditions that may cause it (diarrhea) include: laxative use, food poisoning, celiac disease, C.diff diarrhea, malabsorption, IBD, infectious diarrhea, alcohol abuse.excess iron supplements or gall stones. Without any symptoms or medical or social hx, cant suggest a cause in you.See 2 more doctor answers
