Question Bloated Bloodfin

One of my Bloodfin tetras is like a beach ball I pretty sure it's a female, but she corkscrews and doesn't swim very good due to her roundness. Here are pictures of her. Is there something wrong with her?



So a guy walks into a Pet Store

Guy: "I have Algae on my drift wood!"

Pet Clerk: "Take two Plecos and call me next week."

I think asking if theres something wrong with her is an understatement. That looks very extreme. I had bloated bloodfins once but nothing like that. I fed frozen peas to get mine back to normal, but I'm not really sure anything can help her though. I can be wrong though

she's been like this since the day I got her and that was like 3 months ago. I think she's gotten a little rounder but not by much. She acts fine eats, but kinda hard when your a beach ball haha
