I hope the egg sac looking thing isn't some type of parasite.

@dramaqueen: Yeah D: that's what I was hoping too. That's why I was hoping someone would be able to identify it if it wasn't eggs... cause white poop? Has anyone seen that before?

Well lately it's starting to have some colour... so O_o;; but I managed to pick some of it out with a medicine dropper and i was feeling it and it was kinda mucusy.

I've handled and been around some pretty nasty and grotesque things in my life from being a nursing assistant... but what you just said about getting some of it out with a medicine droper and that it was feeling mucusy gave me the heeby jeebys for some reason. I have no idea why because I've probably handled much worse things lol.

Sorry... I just had to say that. I do hope it isn't some kind of parasite or something though.

If the poop is white and stringy looking, its usually a sign of parasites.

What should I do? D: I'm reading about internal parasites... but should I go with this treatment? It would explain a little while she's not eatting ):

Rinse live and frozen food thoroughly with clean water, and do not pass bowls, nets, or other equipment between healthy fish and sick ones. If you suspect IP, put your betta into clean water and treat immediately with a parasitic medication (I like Clout, Maracyn-2, or Hex-a-Mit). Clean containers well that have been holding infected fish; scald with boiling water or clean with Clorox.

There is medicated food that treats internal parasites. Its made by Jungle Labs, I think.

I bought something called Maracyn-two to treat her. A breeder's site I was reading suggested the medicine to treat internal parasites... I don't think medicated food would work since she doesn't eat anything at all ):
