Fat Cory help!

In the past few days my largest Cory is easily startled and has a growing belly.
Is my Cory with eggs or getting bloated?
She eats plenty, more than the others and has normal color.



Ammonia<0.25

Nitrite<0.25

Nitrate<5.0

I am not a cory expert but it just looks fat to me.

It is a new tank? Is that why you have small ammonia and nitrite readings?

It's a newer tank, like 6 weeks. I'm pretty sure my ammonia is at 0, but in my own paranoia I put the less than. I make a rookie mistake and replaced my filter because that's what the box said, when I added fish last week. I think I put myself into a mini cycle, I checked values daily and did PWC's to keep it down.

Cory's are pretty hardy, I wen through a cycle with 3 of them and they didn't die. I think she might be just bloated, if she eats a lot more, just feed less. Thats all I got. Good luck.

She looks very healthy and may just be gravid.
