Is my oto chubby, pregnant or sick?
One of my Oto's has a plump little belly on heralmost exactly like this fish here: http://www.otocinclus.com/images/fatoto1.jpg
I'm not sure if she is a female, but she is bigger than the other one and I believe females are bigger and plumper than males so I am assuming she is a she. She looks almost exactly the same shape as the picture, but I haven't been able to get a good long look at her up against the glass. Is she just eating more than the other one, is she sick or is she pregnant? They've been in my pre-established ten gallon tank for about a month now with my male betta and they have both grown substantially since I first picked them up. I figured they'd be hardy since they were the last two in their tank of a shipment at the petsmart I go to. There is no redness from what I can see and she seems to be eating and pooping like crazy, which I know are good signs. Also she is very active and interacts with her friend as normal. Any thoughts?
