Please help it's getting much worse! What should I do? What ever is coming out of her is like flaking off and going to the bottom and there is a good amount of it considering she was put in quarantine less than 24 hours ago.Click image for larger version

I would try adding Epsom salt. It works as a laxative for fish and might help her pass out all that junk. Dosage 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons.

If she is still eating you can also try de-shelled peas. That should help to clear her out.
