If she is not eating the peas, what is she eating? I know my fish go nuts for peas when i can be bothered de-shelling a few for them.

If she is still eating and seems happy then i would not wory about it too much, keep her in isolation for another week or so, maybe give her a dose of melafix just to make sure she is all happy and then put her back in the main tank.

If she isn't eating at all then that is a more substantial issue.

I'm surprised that the peas are not being eaten, all my fish love peas even the cichlids go mad for them.

Are you using cooked or raw?

Are you still getting faeces in the isolation tank and is it a normal colour?

White stringy faeces is one of the first signs of bloat.

My fish prefer cooked peas, remove the outer shell of the peas, just squeeze them slightly and the centre will pop out and then discard the outer shell. Just try a couple at first and see how they go.
