my (very young-3") yo yo is getting larger in girth daily. i can't attribute it to just getting the most of the food anymore. i think she's gravid. seems healthly in all other respects, no sign of disease of any type and all water conditions are normal as per my wardel 5 in one test strips. all other fish are fine, too. I started a notebook to keep track of what's going on and am keeping record of tank conditions, changes, feeding, lighting and observations on behavior. she has one possible male yo yo in w/her who is still too young to know what's up and another i'm fairly sure is female. i think if i feed her more worms she'll get fairly loaded w/eggs but i don't think the male is up to it yet althoug
