I think my new female dumbo halfmoon might be egg bound. I just got Indah, and so I don't want anything to happen to her. She is in a community tank

What should I do?

She doesn’t look egg bound to me, usually they will be very plump in the belly area, yours looks pretty slim to me.

What are her symptoms?

I'm also not seeing anything wrong with her. What makes you think that she's eggbound?

Doesn't look egg bound to me either. Maybe just a little bloated...?

I thought her scales looked ever so slightly raised

I know it's a long shot, but watch closely for dropsy. Not sure where you got her, but I've had MANY bettas from chain stores end up with dropsy

Got her from petco. So her setup is a 20 gallon community. 3 platies, 5 neons, and two guppies as well as an oto. Heavily planted, walstad inspired. She just got fed peas yesterday

Feeding peas to betta is not a beneficial thing to do. A very outdated practice that was typically used to help them pass a blockage/constipation. It can help at times but it creates more issues in the intestines more often than not. They are made to digest insect proteins, not plant. It's better to feed them daphnia instead.

I'm not seeing anything wrong with her otherwise, the only slight raising I see is near her tail from the shape of her body and how she's moving. Doesn't hurt to keep an eye on her.
