    I can't exactly tell if my female Sterbai cory is just full from food, bloated (I hope not), or is carrying eggs. I can get more photos if needed. They are in a 36 gallon, 5 sterbai cories in total (I used to have 6, one died shortly after bringing home), and one male betta.

    The pics are a bit small and far away from the corydoras but to me the fish looks normal. Female corydoras are naturally fat.

    Ah, okay! I'll still keep a close eye on her, just in case. I would love to try to raise some fry.

    She looks very similar to when my ablino females get heavy with eggs, so if you have a male or two old enough to breed you will likely see some eggs!

    Looks as a healthy wellfed gravid female indeed.
    Corys in fact can hardly bloat cause of their plates : therfor if they do the eyes "pop out" cause those are the weakest spots in their armour.
