stop feeding her if shes constipated. but I have to go now so sorry I'll get back asap.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

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.
