I would suggest it's male and therefore highly unlikely to be pregnant

Could we get a clearer pic? It looks more like a he, because of the large tail and such but I can't see the anal fin so I don't know. By the way his belly is squished into one bubble I'd say no it's a he

I agree. The finnage looks male but we need a closer clearer pic to make sure.

Looks male to me just by the way the body is shaped. I think females are a bit broader in the upper torso also.
