Question Female betta has hair-like material protruding from her anus.

This morning, when I woke up to feed her, I saw something like hair coming out from her anus.Her behavior seems normal.Should I pull it out, or just leave it there.Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

DO NOT PULL IT OUT! It will come out when she poops. If she is acting ok and has no other symptoms, no need to do anything.

Hmm.. That's strange. If its white it could be internal parasites. I would continue feeding her and watch for more poo to make sure any other poo is the same color as her food. I've seen internal parasites before and my bettas poo wasn't quite so thin.
If you continue seeing poo that looks like that, I would treat her. That's definitely not normal.
