Maroon clown won't let her eggs.

My gsm's were on a bi-weekly schedule. She had stopped paying one week when I had some bad luck. My ro unit over filled my sump about an extra 8 inches of water and my main heater died and the backup was not plugged in. So I dropped a couple points in salt and a few degrees.

She is now swollen on her left side. Her lower belly is not swollen at all, the bump is about 3/4 of the way down her middle stripe. (She is full grown very large, biggest fish in the tank.) the length of the bump on her left side has increased over the last few weeks. He still periodically cleans the rock, and she is acting her normal self. I've heard lots of horror stories but can't really get a straight answer as to what's up. Anything I can do?

I don't think I can help. But a picture might help others with similar experiences see what you are talking about to help determine. Is she just gravid (lopsided) or is she sick?

I have pics from march 10th and yesterday. She is showing no symptoms whatsoever other than she is swollen. Still swims pretty far from her nems when hungry, still eats flakes/pellets but I did notice she doesn't go after shrimp as much as she used to.

Let's see if I can get these pictures s up...

March 10
yesterday

Keep in mind these are side pics, I'll try and get a lower one. She is NOT swelled on the bottom. The swelling starts half an inch or so up from her bottom.

Well that is quite a bump. As I said I can't help but I see why you are worried.
