Hi, Chris here... I know, long time no speak... I hope all is well all... Life sure has become more challenging these days... Thank goodness The covid virus is not a fishy issue.... I have a beautiful bronze female Oranda... Just about 2 years old... I believe she has become egg 🥚 bound... I have always kept males so that I wouldn’t have this issue... But, she was a gift along with her brother at about 3 months old... So identifying the sex was a best guess with them being so young... She and her brother have been strong robust fish... Pepper ( my female) has grow strong and large... She approximately 9 inches long... In the spring she dropped eggs on 3 or 4 occasions without issue and my males loved having a caviar snack... She did this without assistance from the boys... The boys are to dumb to figure out what to do when she did drop eggs other than enjoying a snack... 🤪🤪🤪 I have placed her in quarantine and have dosed the tub with Aqueon Water conditioner, API Stress zyme & Melafix... Also added Epsom salt at 1/4 tsp per 10 gallons. She has not been fed today... Tub temp matched to the tank temp of 76 degrees..
