Big Belly Tiger Barb

I have a tiger Barb that has had a big belly for some time now. At first I figured it was going to spawn but it has been about two months and nothing. It also seem to want to float to the top especially after eating which I am assuming is from swallowing to much air feeding at the surface. The other Tiger Barb I have bugs it alot in a playful way. any ideas?

the time is 4:20

Might be swim bladder problem, from flake food I think. It swells up in the belly. (not 100% sure on the cause). Try feeding some veges ie. cooked zucchini or cooked peas with skin removed. I have been told by my LFS that this can help.
