Epsom salts will help relive some of the distress that accompanies being egg bound.
It might be unnecessary if the fish is releasing eggs, but it will only help.

Oops. I did, indeed, get it backwards. But both are normal for a female Neon.

However, there is still no firm treatment for egg bound fish. Some say exposing to males triggers release; some contend fasting for several weeks causes the female to absorb the eggs to keep from starving; some say "yes" to ES while other say it has never worked for them.

This is not a female Guppy; it is what an egg bound fish looks like. Close to how my egg bound female Betta appeared.

I agree. There is no surefire treatment for egg bound fish. (Probably except for manually squeezing the eggs out in larger fish, but that requires a bit of knowledge of the fish anatomy. Also it's not applicable in all cases).
