Did you get only one? If you did there is no chance that you will get fry unless you have some other cories of the same spices in your tank. And even if you did you need to have a big group with females and males. The females will lay the eggs and the males will fertilise them and thats it.

But to answer your question: I don't know if she is carrying eggs but even if she is and she is the only cory she won't lay them nor will they hatch.

Livebearers (guppies, platies, mollies, swordtails, Gambusia, etc) are the only fish that get a gravid spot. Corydoras do not get one.

It's just a bronze Corydoras with nothing special happening.
