    Please help me! Female cobalt zebra, at first I thought it was constipation so I starved her out for a few days and did an epsom salt bath, but it hasn’t gone down. She’s still her normal sassy self, and swimming fine, but she hasn’t eaten or pooped in at least three days.

    it s probably some sort of blockage

    Yikes, I haven't ever dealt with this.
    It may very well be a blockage or a prolapsed uterus.

    maybe try putting some parasite medicine on a little bit of flake food. or will she not eat?

    She hasn’t been eating but I haven’t tried forcing her yet. She eats out of my hand sometimes so maybe I can entice her with peas or something first

    I’ve been worried that it might be a prolapsed uterus. In that case would the only solution be to find an aquatic vet or something?

    The other fish in my tank seem very healthy, so if it’s not parasites do you know what sort of other blockage could be possible?

    I do not know how to treat it, just avoid any possible ways of it being picked on.
