    Default Are female gouramis generally rounder than males?

    When my male gourami died I replaced it with a trio of females. Lately they've gotten very round around the middle, more so than the male ever was. Is this normal? I worry that they're overeating but it's a community tank with 50 or so fish in there, so I don't know how to put the gouramis on a diet without starving out the other fish.
    300 gallon mega tank: build in progress
    75 gallon community tank: tetras, danios, corys, platies, otos, pearl gouramis, bristlenose pleco, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
    70 gallon growout tank: clown loaches, sailfin pleco
    60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
    29 gallon frog tank: 1 bullfrog
    10 gallon and 5.5 gallon betta tanks: 1 male betta each, sometimes snails

    My females were always more rounded yes. Might also be because all the females ive had were/are pigs and so they became obese. I tried dieting them and yea, it just starves other fish and makes females more determined to eat everything. So i gave up and let them be rounder.

    Its probably because they are gravid. Good tank conditions leads to healthy females which will carry eggs. It would be difficult to diet the gouramis while feeding the other fish. Maybe a feeding ring?
