My female sunglow motley laid 18 perfect eggs for me about a month ago, and seemed fine. However, she has been refusing food since and I think she laid a slug (hard to identify eggish blob) about a week ago. Now she has a small swelling on her belly just before her vent, like she might have another. She also has brown crusty scales around her vent and her vent itself looks a little swollen. I tried washing the area, and the crustiness looks to be the scales themselves. Is this serious? I have a tendency to overreact to little things, but she's my best producer and dont want to risk anything. I am also calling my vet, but I just moved and have never been to this vet before.
