I am hear to make sure you have all your questions answered before you rate my service.. SO I am very happy you had further questions with regards XXXXX XXXXX recovery. Please continue to ask your questions and then once satisfied go ahead and rate our conversations BUT not until you are satisfied with it :)
I would continue the pea twice daily for another 7 days ( by that point she should look like herself again and there should be no signs of any issues)- from there do a pea in the morning and a small amount of food in the evenings. ( at this point you will want to keep an eye out for repeat distention - make sure scales are not sticking out from the body - make sure she has good appetite ) When feeding regular food - avoid dried high protein foods(flakes) - and if you use a pellet - pre-soak it before feeding it.
Once recovered - you can provide a pea in replacement of a meal three times a week to keep good GI health. Also Foods with lots of fiber could be introduced, such as zucchini, squash, spinach, romaine lettuce, peas (already done), and grated carrots.
As far as poop goes -
1)The poop is long but the same color as the food you
feed them but it trails the fish. This fish is fed to much and is a little
constipated. Fish shouldnt be feed for three days.
2) Good healthy poop should be the same color as what you have
feed them. The poop should be short to medium length and not be trailing the
fish for long lengths of time.
3) Same color as there food but its thin and long. This normally caused by stress and not eating well. Fish should be closely watched.
4) There isnt any color to the poop and there is air trapped in the poop. This is signs of constipation, the food isnt being prossed in the fish. Fish should be not feed for three days and then feed nothing but peas for three days.
I hope this helps.. :) If you still have further questions please do not hesitate to ask !! I am heart o help you get her through this.. Once satisfied I hope you will undo my Poor rating and re-rate this conversation..
