Looks like dropsy honestly, not gravid, none of my females ever got that large. IF she is gravid, you need to have her and a male in a tank to spawn. With out a male any eggs she does drop will be unfertilized.

Thats dropsy. It looks like its advanced. Best to euthanize the fish as its very hard to cure. I would do this immediately.
