If you plug in a filter, or get a "dead' filter working if it has been off and spews out crap, it will be determintal to your fish. You "good" bacteria in the filter would have died and the gunk wouldn't be healthy to your fish. I'm assuming that the filter was working but you thought it had died.

If you haven't already, do a partial water change.

Swordtail sex organs are located at the last fin on the bottom of the fish before the tail. Females have a "regular" fan shaped fin, males have a noticable penis. Both sexes can have the "sword" at the end of the actual tail.
