My female BST eats too agressively and has doubled in size over the past two months. At feeding time, she greedidly eats so much that she looks like she's going to burst. I try and feed my two Leopard Cories shrimp pellets, but after devouring the flakes or bloodworms I use to distract her - she'll see them eating, scoop up a pellet and carry it around, before practically swallowing it whole. I'm concerned that she is eating too much and it reminds me of the old fish tale of overfeeding a goldfish that grows too big for the tank. Between her and my territorial single blue tetra (the other pig in the group) the rest of the community doesn't get quite as much food as they probably should. Should I attempt to chase down and isolate her during feeding time for her health?
