Neon tetra

I have a Neon tetra who is sitting under my driftwood in my 10g. The other neons swimming. I noticed the neon tetra has been slightly larger in the stomach area for awhile. Possible pregnancy?
Tanks been set up for8-9 months. Temp has been movin around lots from 79- 84 f from summer heat.

Alot of fish will eat their own eggs, especially if its their first few times so you may want to put her in a separate aquarium until she drops the eggs.

Try fasting the tank for a couple days fish have small stomachs and only need to eat every other day or so that's what I do fish in the wild only eat once a week maybe also it could be bloat so try fasting if not also try feeding blanched deshelled peas
