But, if he is not and he simply has his mouth stuffed full of eggs,
he'll starve to death. What should I do? Wait and see if he starts to
thin out and then try and remove the eggs or simply remove them, right

habit, that has been previously undocumented, but I don't want to do so
at the risk of my fishes health.
