I was checking all my fish over and noticed my female mandarin looks like she swallowed a marble! I've had a pair in the 75 for about a year now. The male is still larger than the female. But she looks more round than usual. They were eating frozen when I bought them but have since decided that all the copepods in the tank just taste better- so that's all they eat. I only got a pair so they wouldn't be lonely. Never expected nor planned on them breeding. Don't think it will happen soon anyway, but could she still be gravid even though the male is still bigger than her?
