To me it is eithe bloat or eggs. And as you wrote she is active, eating a lot, it must be eggs.
Now the thing is - are the others, presumably males, also very active? You might be looking at an attempt to breed.
I have no idea what to look out for regarding breeding behavior, all I know is it's difficult. However I doubt fry would survive my current set up anyway as they are housed with geophagus cichlids and some others.
I've taken a short video of her with the group, there is a lot of chasing going on recently.
She is a very opportunistic eater , see this video where she actually surfaces to eat some floating cichlid pellets!
She is definitely a greedy fish. No other loaches behave like this in my aquarium.
Does anyone know how long she will hold the eggs ? ( If they're eggs at all )
This time I am at a total loss, unless she's fat because she's full of worms maybe? I was planning to do a big water change tonight anyway, the tank is 5 foot/450 lt with other fish all seeming healthy apart from a few geriatric peacock gudgeons who look a bit wasted/slim. I've had these fish since mid 2017 and they've been in this big tank for a couple of years now so for one of them to just drop dead is really puzzling.
