    hi, welcome to fishlore. :)
    without more information, it's hard to tell what's going on.
    do you know about the nitrogen cycle? if you do, did you cycle before adding the neons?
    are you able to take a picture?

    if you'd fill out your aquarium information, it would be easier for members to give you advice :)

    a photo will help.
    what all is in your tank? and do you know how many gallons it is? your post mentions tetras but your aquarium info says siamese fighters... I'm a little confused.

    in my signature is a link to the nitrogen cycle. To keep a healthy tank, it's important to understand your fish's water. If you get a chance, you should read the link. :)

    Hi welcome to FishLore :)
    How many gallons is your tank?
    I don't see any neons listed in your aquarium info, only a Betta.

    Since your tank is only a week old, it would be a good idea to read the link about the nitrogen cycle
    It would be a good idea to have your water tested for ammonia, nitrItes and nitrAtes.

    I suspect that it's not pregnant, but showing signs of a cycling tank. If the betta is in with the neons, there could be stress issues also. Neons and Bettas are not compatible.

    Edit: Duh, I see your title says 10g's. :)
    That answers that question. lol
