What part of the body does it have the white string? What does it look like, is it long and thin and moving or just attached to the fish?

Was it his poop? If so it may have to do with what you're feeding it.

If the fish continues to show those symptoms, you should mix Seachem Metroplex and Focus into your food. It's usually a sign of internal parasites.

It should not because you are targeting the medicine in the fish food. Best to not to broadcast feed if possible.
