Yoyo Loach HEAVY with eggs!

Is there ever an issue with a female so heavy with eggs that she looks like she will burst?? :shock:

Does anyone know?? She is getting bigger and bigger!! There is a male, but I have read there is little chance of fertilization. I worry about her, plus, I have to get her a bigger cave, for hiding!!

I haven't kept yoyos but have had several species of loach females get HUGE. She may stay that way. They don't seem to often resorb the eggs or expel them like some fish do. Other than having trouble swimming (& fitting in her cave, lol) I haven't had problems.

Thanks, NancyD! That is a relief! She really looks uncomfortable and I need the larger cave! Ha!

How did this go? Did she end up having it or was she just bloated?
