well i was doing some research online to see if could find anything about the belly and i think that it might be pregant, from what i read they breed in the summer time and the male will find a nice little cave for the female to lay their eggs. and this morning half the sand in my tank was moved so he may be trying to find a sutiable area for her. this is jsut a guess if anyone has anyother info on why it's belly would be so bloated it would be much appreacated. if it lays eggs or get smaller or dies i will update again so people know.
