Exactly What Do Fish-eggs Look Like Then?

Last night, I thought one of my fish was constipated. He (and I call him he with no proof...) ate a few peas, and promptly swelled up. I kept an eye on him, and noticed he was not pooping like he normally does after a feed. Every now and again, he gave out a little, white poop - about 2mm at the most.

He seemed fine this morning, but still a little bloated, so we decided to fast him for 24/48 hours, then feed peas again.

Now he seems back to normal size (almost, anyway) - but there is a long (10cm) thin, stringy white something wrapped on one of the fake plants. I think its a poop (and not a particularly healthy one at that) - but could it be eggs? Could Bam-bam be a bamette? Or is this just him getting over the constipation?

I thought I'd post in this section, as most people in this bit have bred before! If I'm totally wrong, sorry!

:huh:

Actually..... (he said sheepishly)...

It was all fibre from the potted plants in the tank. Where I'd done a gravel-vac earlier tonight, I'd uprooted a potted drac!

Ho hum - so at least not horrible, bacterial poop!

Thanks for the answer though. :thanks
