Technically not 'pregnant' but egg bound, yes.

Basically means pregnant, except this fish is not a livebearer, they lay eggs, not give birth.

Yes, they usually lay their eggs on plants, but they eat them right after. So if you want to keep the young you'll have to move the pregnant one to a separate tank and remove her once she's finished spawning.
