Hi there,
About a year ago I bought two 1-2/3 inch yoyos. I added them to my Cichlid tank, which also has Gouramis and a zebra loach. they are all doing great, but one has close to doubled in size and is incredibly fat. She-he lounges around all day inside a hollow rock and seems to do nothing but sleep each and have the odd swim around. Other than that, she-he looks great. Lovely colour and no scale problems. My other two loachs are much sleeker and more active.
Anyway,My question is, is it common for Yoyo's to get obese? If so why, and what should i do if anything?
Thanks in advance!
