    Is she pregnant or bloated

    Hello again Family! My tetra is huge but I’m not sure if she’s filled with eggs or just bloated. Now if you look at the background those are all OLD dead eggs from some time ago. But when that took place, she was no where near this big. Also, I do have a male tetra in the tank with her.
