Eggbound craziness.

So the other day I put Tails in his own tank (1.5 gl I know, but he loves it so much more then the divided tank and is so much happier) and moved the divider so PeeWee and Peterson had the 10 gallon to themselves and Peterson gets under the divider unbeknownst to me and takes a huge huge bite out of PeeWee's tail (poor guy, it was just healing up too) And now she's super eggbound. I was fasting her, in hopes she would just absorb them but she just digs in the substrate for waste to eat now. She has gone down some since then though, but I'm afraid she's just gonna be an eggy girl. Should I go ahead and let them join up and her release her eggs and then just remove them to help her get over it?

His poor tail!

What other symptoms is she showing...eggy is normal and expected...generally no intervention is needed unless she is symptomatic-lethargic, not pooping or eating, hiding, buoyancy issues other than the normal slight tail up position....feed the poor girl otherwise....can you post a pic of her.....
