Hair thing and babies

My dwarf gourami just had a similar hair type thing coming out and I was wondering what it was. According to a Petco fish specialist, the gourami's anus is way up forward because of the long anal fin, and this was basically just poop coming out. They said it happens when fish are not really eating much, but they still have to poop. Often stress from a new environment. Here is the video (I'm not talking about the two feeler things):

What kind of fish? It could be internal parasites.

She looks fine to me. Seems to have squared off quite a bit... probably drop some fry shortly.
