False Percula Clown - Anus

Good afternoon forum:

Not sure whats going on with my 12 year old clown and hoping someone can shed some light on the issue.

Saturday morning we noticed she was laying in the sand next to her Frog spawn. We we get near the tank she'd darts back in the coral. When looking at her you can see her anus open like shes trying to pass something, its white as well. Still swimming fine and biting the heck out of me when I put my hand in the tank. Any thoughts? Could it just be constipation?

She's still going after her food, but wont take any veggies, big surprise.

Nothings been added to the tank in about a year, but Ultra Life Slime Away (added Wednesday the week before). I've did a water change Saturday, but the issue persists this morning

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Hoping shes OK, as that fish has been part of my Daughters life for, well, 12 years!

Thanks Tom

Bummer, I'd post this in disease forum as well for most views and comments from those more experienced w/ disease and parasites, sounds like a blockage but I'm not sure if there is anything that really treats that.
Good luck, post outcome

She's still doing great, if not better. The opening is there, but looks smaller and more of a orange color.

Now, I'm thinking, could she be holding eggs?

Just to report back; she has made full recovery. All I did was bi-weekly water changes and upped her veggie intake.

So happy she'll live on!!! Hopefully start producing eggs would be great as well!
