Is it a long white tube or is that a plant?

I hope it's not too late for her. Add some epsom salt and do frequent waterchanges whilst she's in QT.

If I'm seeing the picture right, it looks like your girl has an internal parasite. Put her in a quarantine tank and dose her with a parasite medication like Jungle Labs Parasite Clear. You need to clear out those worms from her before she gets bloated and develops dropsy (where they pinecone out). Aquarium or epsom salts will help but will not flush out the parasites.

However, just in case I'm not seeing the pic right, I'm going to ask how long is the tube?
