Is my Napo tetra carrying eggs or sick

Hi. I bought 5 Napo Tetras 2 weeks ago. All going well. However, the dominant fish started looking swollen and breathing quickly yesterday morning. Could it be carrying eggs or is sick? Fed some green peas last night. Starting this morning, it seemed to be not interested in food. Photo attached. I have a 75 gallon low tech planted tank with torpedo barbs, electric blue jack dempsey, pim cat, asian bumblee catfish, SAE etc. No bullying in the tank.

The fish that has the issue is the largest at about 4 to 4.5 cm. The other 4 are smaller at about 3 cm. Saw from website that max size of this species is 5 cm.
