Is my neon tetra pregnant or just fat?

I have 6 neon tetras with 6 cory cats a male betta and a snail. I have noticed that one of my tetras is larger than the others.

Hopefully the pictures are attached they arent at all good quality but if you look at the stomach of the fish you might be able to distinguish whats wrong with him/her

Can't tell much from the photos. Could you try taking one without zooming in? And don't use flash as it often reflects off the glass and makes it more difficult to see details.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
