Egg Bound Female

Hey guys! I bought a female recently from Petco and she was a little bloated in a weird way. They didn't know why but she's been acting healthy so I figured she was just fat. Well today I noticed a white spot on her belly and research told me she's egg bound. She's still eating fine and swimming around actively. I have a male named Jonah and I'd like to know the safest way to get her to drop her eggs. Should I try mating them or just putting them where they can see each other hoping that it may work?

The white spot doesn't mean she's egg bound. Have you tried fasting her?

Yeah that's what I tried in the beginning. I used some peas in case she was constipated but it didn't have any effect. I looked up some pictures of eggbound fish and she looks exactly like the pictures. She's round but only in the front
