how long has she been in the breeding trap? pretty sure thats whats wrong. a lot of people won't use these traps because they can stress your fish. i use them quite a bit but if the female doesn't begin to drop her fry within 24hours i always let her out. she is probably not giving birth because she is stressed. this is probably why she isn't eating / only eating a little at a time. try letting her out of the trap for a day or two, if she is still really big but has her appitite back, try the trap again.
