Does anyone have a photo of a pregnant neon tetra? mine has a small bulge in that area and I'm not sure if it's pregnant or if it has some disease.

Neon's don't get 'pregnant', they are egg layers. An eggy female will be plumper than most, but she would have dropped eggs overnight.

its probably just bloated from eating to much, mine do that they are greedy little pigs and then get so bloated they cant swim properly, even though ive cut back on feeding they still have that "plumpness" My guess is that you have that as well.

thanks everyone. you must be right because the bulge goes away and then re-appears when they eat.
