platies... thing

At the fish store i saw a lot of platies with these long tube like things. It looked like they were pooping but it was connected to them. It is really really long. Can someone explain what this is?

Yes it was poo.

One of my blue platties is now trailing a string approximately 4 times the length of her body.
