    Pregnant tetra or bloat?

    Hi, I’m looking after my cousins fish. He has some guppies and two tetras. I noticed one of them has a very distended belly and wondering if it’s pregnant or bloated? If the latter, how can I get it’s stomach down. He feeds tropical flake food. In photos is the size difference between the two.
