But should I be worried and is there anything I should do?
She is very active at the moment, doesn't look unwell or anything, just very gravid (I think). I'm not sure if I have any Pangio myersi males in there.

Any advice welcome.
She's certainly acting pretty normal, if anything a bit more active than usual. She doesn't seem ill.
Hopefully she will try and spawn.
I've got a mixture of P.myersi, P.oblonga and P.kuhlii/semicincta in the tank, about 15 in total, but I'm not certain of their sexes apart from this one.
Catching them out of the tank into a bucket I had a little surprise turn up!
Edit: sorry, those pictures have come in far too big. Try this:

I'd seen (and videoed) them spawning several times but hadn't expected any eggs to survive the hungry mouths of the adults.
I've kept the little one because I want to see if it grows up to be a Pangio myersi or a Pangio kuhlii.
Anyway, I'd sold all the adults and kept the tiddlers, and now they've both grown up. They're fairly shy but occasionally to be seen out and about. After a water-change and a treat of live worms, one of them came out and started doing laps of the tank. Needless to say, by the time I had fetched the camera it had gone to ground. A frustrating 20 minutes ensued, as a variety of Corydoras either photo-bombed or chased away both the kuhlis. Eventually I managed some good photos of one, and a poor photo of the other.
Now that they've grown up, they look a lot like their mother including the strong colouration (pics higher up in the thread). I suspect they may both be females - certainly the one that posed for photos has a 'figure 8' cross-section.
