My yo-yo loach has a very large stomach and it keeps eating non-stop. The stomach is very visible and I worry if there is any way to help the yo-yo lose weight. Thank you.

Is this a female loach? Pregnant yoyos tend to look quite ghastly and awkward when they're pregnant so this could be the case.

Females tend to be rounder or fatter in general, whereas males are more slender. Another way to tell is that males often have a reddish tint around their whiskers. Hope this helps.

Females are bigger than males and the biggest dominant fish in a group is the top female. She will usually be quite a lot bigger than all the others.
