Need some advice on how to proceed. She is breathing fast and appears to have a swollen stomach.

She was very active until last night and the meal before was thawed brine shrimp and blood worms.

I have added epsom salts and have not fed any of the fish.

I'm trying to post a video.

If it is constipation, you can try to feed it green peas.

Lots of aeration- bug water changes and lots of canned peas as they will sink. Then lots of water changes (the crap will fly out of her once she eats these). 3% pickling salt vs Epsom is my choice - never trusted those salts as they can be made with fragrances!

Thanks. I'll put that info into the bank. Apparently in two days things just got worse. I keep a close eye of things too. Can't help but feel like I should have been able to do more.

She died while I was at work today.
