My pregnant guppy has a thin white string coming from her mouth. It wasn’t there a few hours ago. I don’t know if I should try to pull it our or if this is something she’s trying to eat or what. Please look at the pictures and let me know what u think.

15 gallon tank
live and artificial plants
4 guppies (1 male, 3 females)

it looks like plant to me. grab the end of the thing in its mouth and see if you can pull it out. don't touch the fish tho, just hold the thing and try to lift it out of the water, the weight of the fish should let it come out.

I tried to pull it out. When I did it pulled the fish out of the water. Needless to say, I let go! She seems fine and is still able to eat. I hope it is a plant and not worms. I’m have no experience treating those

That's weird. Did it seem to cause her pain? I mean It would obviously be uncomfortable to be pulled out of the water by your mouth but other than that?
