gravid female?

looking at my largest yo yo lately and she seems remarkable fat compared to the other two. she also has the reticulated pattern associated with more mature loaches and i was wondering if she could be gravid and if so what to do about it? If you go to the archives and look at kampol's pic at this link this is how she looks only just a tad less air in her flat tire. she's (?) in a community tank with two other yo yos and other fish. don't know if the other loaches are mature enough to do anything about a gravid female or even if they are male! just wish i had a digital camera and knew how to post a pic. she sure is cute and most definitely the boss of the other two.
