I’ve had them for close to 8 months. My other 5 are a healthy adult size except for this one. I try to only feed the minimum one time a day for 6 days a week and fast 1 day a week. I can’t tell if she has eggs or is just super fat as I’ve never breed tetra and have only been in the hobby for about a year. I do have breeding corydoras in this tank and my water parameters are all good and it is heavily planted. Any help would be appreciated.

I would say eggs
I wish the pictures could die the fish justice. I would guess she’s as a dime I would say, and about 2 inches long. Monster of a tetra. I’ve never seen one this big. Should I be worried about her being egg bound? There are other slimmer ones that I would guess are males but I’ve never seen eggs. Also, since I’m here, are Glowlight Tetra eggs or neon tetra eggs light sensitive? I’ve seen it before somewhere but haven’t been able to find it again and it was the only place I’ve ever seen it.
