Some of my labs spawned last night. My female (and probably best looking lab of course) is now holding but it appears that she might be egg bound as her vent area is very swollen and red. There is also some slight discharge from the area. Is this normal after a spawn or should I be worried? I never noticed this on my other labs after a spawn. I removed her from the main tank and put her in a 10 gal so she can get some peace. I took some pics when I moved her. What do you experts think?

it was a good idea to Q her, especially because she is discharging. if you want a mild approach, try a treatment of epsom salt, at 2 tsp. per gal. if you want something more intense, treat her with an antibacterial like jungle's 'fungus eliminator'. IMO.
