She's just pooping :)
Sometimes their poop is VERY long and sometimes it's rather short.

Also how big is the baby?

3 pennies is VERY long for a betta o.O

Body length wise. Especially for a female.

Dude, no need for an attitude. She was concerned for her fish, it happens as a new fish owner.

Popcorn, one of my girls was going to the bathroom the other day, and my fiance was worried that there was something wrong with her too, because she was mid-process (it was a BIG poop!). It took me a minute to reassure him that she was fine, and we've had bettas together for about 2 years.

We rarely see them actually going to the bathroom, just the poops in the gravel, so it can be a little concerning or off-putting to catch them in the act. lol

Better to ask, and find out that it's no big deal, than to be afraid to ask a question that may be life or death.
