Tetra

Have 3 tetra fish. I have no idea the male/female ratio. One of them has a huge round belly suddenly. Reminds me of my mollies when I had them and they were pregnant. Now I know they aren't live bearers but I read that she may be full of eggs. What do u all think? If so what do I do? I have a total of 5 small fish 3-tetra and 2 other fish, sorry I have no idea what kind they are. What do they lay eggs on if she is pregnant and what do I need to do?

Ok I tried to figure out my male and female. I can't. They say look at the fins but I don't know what fin is what. What if I don't have a male to fertilize the eggs? I don't know that I do.

The tetra looks bloated to me, I'd hold off on feeding for a day or two and see if it helps.

You know I thought about that as well. I will do that and see if it goes down. Thanks!

It's a Black Skirt Tetra. You can Google how to breed them.

Yep she looks bloated. You could could a pea, shell it. Cut it up into little pieces and give it to her. That ought to reduce the bloated belly

Do her scales look puffed up like a pinecone? If not that's a real puzzle
