Thank you for the reassurance that she will be ok. How long before I should be concerned if her poop isn't back to normal? Should the foods you listed be her diet from now on if they're good for her and fish flakes are not? Would that be a well-rounded diet or would she be missing nutrients? Is there any fish food that is good for her or is "real food" the better diet, and what other foods would be healthy? Again, thank you for your help.
Hi Dr. Taus,
Sandy has been pooping more, some still stringy but less often...it's more short, a little on the thick side, and green like the color of peas and cucumber she's been eating. The bloating...although not severe, still hasn't gone down completely. I bought plants you recommended for her in the tank to nibble on - I've given them a salt bath and waiting a few days to make sure there are no snails. All in all, I still don't think she's completely un-constipated, and hoping that changes soon. Any other thoughts would be appreciated...and thank you for your help and concern.
