Is my black neon tetra pregnant?

Is she (I believe it is a she) pregnant? She is the middle black neon.Attachment 239612
She has been hiding a lot more, and she is starting to get boxy around in her stomach area I believe, as she is way bigger than my other black neons.
Attachment 239613
She has been hiding around the Terracotta pot at the back of my tank behind the plant (and update to the last picture, there is now floating water sprite covering most of the tank)

Thanks!

Hi glad you found my forum, when I posted this I was basically a newb when it came to tetras, and as I learned that they are egg layers not livebearers so you need a male tetra too and have never had a tetras lay eggs as far as I've noticed so you really have nothing to worry about

Here's some info I googled if your interested

They lay eggs. They are not live bearers. The chances are pretty slim in them laying eggs. They're extremely hard to breed (neons and cardinals)
