Question I'm a bit confused. Can anyone confirm this for me?

I got Amaryllis, my little pink doubletail female yesterday. Gave her some bloodworms (she wouldn't eat pellets) and this morning I woke up to... well, this. (Sorry for quality and size.)




I'm a bit worried about the top part, kind of... mangled, for lack of a better word.

Tapeworms? I know how to identify them, I've treated them before. It's just these are not completely white or see-through. Do you think it could just be the bloodworms without their color?

And I just went to look at her and she has this tiny little thread-like line coming out of her... that is brown. But you can barely see it.

I'm sorry for this gross subject, I'm just worried about her.

I don't know what that is partially because of the pics being blurry. But the line coming out of her could just be poo if its commin out of near the middle under her.

Yeah, I'm sorry about the blurry pics :S

And I'm very sure it is. It's just so tiny.

it could be normal poops. o.o i freaked out for a moment, when my Caroline pooped a white poop, then i remembered, the day before she'd eaten all the eggs she released. >.>; i don't know what bloodworm-eating betta poop looks like, though.

ChicagoPete- In the pictures? Oh heck no. I should've specified- it's her poop.

Luimeril- yeah, I'm really hoping that :/ She seems very healthy (except for her gill parasites) and active... just hoping that she isn't sick! Tapeworms are an aboslute pain to treat. It usually doesn't look like this, for the bettas who eat bloodworms, but I'm not sure if it indicates parasites or not, since tapeworms are usually white or transparent... And these are translucent and have a brownish tinge to them.

(Oh geez, I'm sorry for going into detail )

It could be a problem of over feeding in my case with him and whell they get backed up and make them like that kinda make you feel really uncomfturble thinking of the strain they musta had when releasing it.....
