I have otos in almost every tank and all are slender but I saw this one today who is very plump. Is it ok?

He looks perfectly healthy and full. What do you feed him? Either he’s being well feed with tons on natural algae or he is a she and might be carrying eggs.

There is a good amount of algae but he/she also likes to munch on the cory’s pellets with them when they aren’t just shrimp.

If is is a she and full of eggs what do I do? I know otos are really hard to breed in the home aquarium so I’d like to try if it is a she full of eggs. I have another in the same tank who isn’t as fat

I'd leave them.
