I noticed a few days ago my f/h stomach was starting to bulge, I figured she was just full of eggs, but I also noticed she's not pooping, I've had her for a few months with no issues until now, Is this bloat? I'm not going to feed her for a few days & see what happens, is their anything else that would help plz lmk?

Hard to tell. Would hold food like ur doing. Acting normal? Can always add a little epsom salt 1tbsp per 5g. That way can see the poo.

Ya she's acting normal, still swimming all over the tank, begging for food, I took the carbon out of my hang on & added rapid cure to kill any parasites left over, gonna clean the canister thoroughly & do another water change, will try epsom salt, thx.
