I have had guppies and bred/raised guppies since I was about 9 years old and now I am 14 so it’s been a good 5 years. And to my understanding, this is most likely a parasite. I personally have never had this happen, but I googled “Guppy Parasite” and looked at the pictures, and all of them seem to have this white string attached. What I would do is test the water in the tank she’s currently in, and then put her in her own cycled hospital tank without any other fish, and dose the parasite treatment daily. Again, I’ve never personally had a parasite on a fish, so I can’t guarantee you that the babies will survive. But just keep dosing the parasite treatment. Hope everything goes well!
Sincerely,
Cameron
