Tetra's are egg layers, so technically they do not get pregnant. Sometimes egg layers can become egg bound, but sadly I can't tell if that is the problem...sorry.

I'm not sure, but Gypsy13 asked if the fish looked bloated (she is blind) so I answered her. It could just be constipation, so maybe you could try fasting the fish for a few days, and maybe even feeding pieces of blanched pea, with the skin removed.

Perfect answer. Thank you.
