I think it might be the bloodworms. You said they were freeze-dried, right? Since they're so... dry, they can make it harder for the fish to poop. Instead of taking out her evening meal, I'd take out her morning meal or give her pellets instead. Fasting still sounds like a good idea, though.

I think I'm giving her too many pellets, too. It's really hard to judge with those super tiny things and I forget the things expand. I'll cut down on those, too. I may dump my male in a barebottom tank for a few days too, just to see how he's doing. Gravel is nice but makes it hard to tell.

I have the same kind of pellets, and I just put a pinch in XD too hard to count. I only feed them once a day, though.

They're like coffee grounds or something, they're so small. But it's handy because of her tiny mouth so if she's happy, I'm happy.

I know. I use the same exact ones XD I love em because I don't have to crush them up or soak them for anybody.

Well, she pooped, a big one, so she's right on her irregular schedule of about every 2-3 days.

'Cause she's in a barebottom tank, it's pretty obvious and if I don't get the vac and suck it out, she acts all embarrased and hides in her plant. Such a modest lady!

Even a partial fast seems to have helped because she pooped again. First time she's gone twice in a day. I'd be ecstatic if this wasn't such a weird topic to be happy about.
