Discontinue the bloodworms, an exclusive bloodworm diet can quickly lead to the malawi bloat in algae-grazing mbuna species such as red zebra's.

Try introducing only veggie flakes or sinking low-protein percentage pellets. In time hunger will compel this red zebra to eat them as Mouth-Brooder-Fanatic suggested. If rejected, just try again the next day and the next rather than providing bloodworms.

Her stomach doesn't appear to be overly sunken in.

Ok I will try to be strong for her and no more bloodworms!

Just out of curiosity what is considered low protein?
