Are they livebearers? I have one that is looking way fatter than normal

I believe all tetras are egg-layers. The only livebearers are mollies, platies, guppies, half-beaks and maybe a few others.

If you have one fatter then normal, it may be an egg laden female.

Is there any way to tell if it's bloated or just eggs?
