very sick zebra danio

Please can anyone help me, or rather my poor zebra danio. I have had her for about 6 weeks and she (I think it's a she) has always been fatter than the others but I thought that was because she was a female. But now she can't swim and just floats about on her side near the top of the water.

I have separated her from the others (all my other fish are fine) and don't know what to do. The water was fine, I've tried epsom salt baths, water changes, nothing seems to help her. This started 4 days ago when all of a sudden she was just lying on the bottom of the tank on her side.


Tried feeding peas, but she won't eat.
She looks fine apart from being very fat etc. scales, fins ok

Please help

She looks fine apart from being very fat etc. scales, fins ok

Is it possible that it has swim bladder disease?

Could swim bladder be affected by overeating or eggbound?
