I had a prolapsed platy yesterday, and i asked about it in the emergency section. The replies said that i had to isolate her and medicate her for her to pull through, so i isolated her and made plans to get to petsmart the next day. But this morning, she was healthy looking again! Is it possible for fish to fix a prolapse on their own?

A prolapse is caused by the contractions of birth pushing the womb and sometimes intestines out. Once they have given birth, the womb shrinks right down as it is now empty and the contractions stop so there is nothing pushing on it. Therefore it fixes itself. You should never breed her again though if she has prolapsed as she will almost certainly do it again next time and is far more likely to burst something and die.
