They aren't parasites. Since you said it was female, its probably her eggs.

Well what size tank is she in now? I wouldn't jump on it yet. Stringy white poop usually means parasites not eggs. Just because it's a female doesn't mean that they can't get parasites. I'll give you a link when one of my fish had parasites (sadly he passed away). But it gives all of the information that people gave me.

http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=37581 I also have pictures of the poop. Like Kelly said in that post: "A one-time stringy poop can simply be an irritated digestive tract overproducing mucus but if you see this a few more times it's internal parasites. Jungle Parasite Clear used in conjunction with Jungle's anti-parasitic food should clear it up." So that's why I said don't jump on it now because it could be an irritated digestive tract. So just keep an eye on her poop.

Okay. And thanks for the link, but thats not what the poop looked like. It was more like a string that curled at the bottem. I haven't seen her poop since, though I haven't fed her since I have posted in case she is bloated. I will hopefully be able to get a isolation tank tomarrow.

Well I noticed yesterday she was very active. I haven't seen her this active since the day I got her. And then she was just scared and banging against the cup trying to get out. But she seems fine now. Maybe whatever was wrong is gone now. Anyways thanks everyone.
