But Tetras do carry eggs. Which is why they get large. The more larger the female the more eggs she is carrying. Males dont carry eggs and they dont get very large.sandiegoryu said:But everyone here is saying it is a tetra, and tetra's do not get fat when pregnant... I think its disease too. Come to think of it, my male white cloud has similar bloat. And its been a while too lol. It comes and goes. I feed it sparingly too.
