Neon Tetras

How can you tell what sex neons are?

I have a tank with a few and I think one may be carrying eggs but I'm not sure...

I separated it from the rest just to be sure...incase its sick instead.

I'm new to this so detailed help would be awesome lol.

females typically have a triangular belly, and may be larger than the males.

males typically have a flat belly.

females also have a light bend in their blue stripe
