I didn't know what this thing was but she still doesn't seem bothered at all, she sucked it back in and is just swimming about still as normal.
Is this anything bad or is it just eggs or what? I don't have any pictures sorry.
Good idea to have water tested. ammonia and nitrites should be zero and NitrAtes should be no higher than 20 ppm and temp should be on the cool side for danios ,around 74 degrees.
could very well be that female is carrying eggs and will drop them at some point. Eggs are likely to be eaten if other danios or female herself,come across them.
