The picture is a bit fuzzy. There are somethings about the fish from the picture that look disturbing, but the picture is just too distorted.

I am going to be optimistic to you - Your fish is pregant again!

The eyes look much better in the second picture...phew...your fish is pregnant again! :)

...if I am wrong your fish will probably have more babies before it dies.

hello and welcome.
can you look at your fish from above,and see if it looks a little
like a pine cone ? if the scales are sticking out,then a case of bloat,which
sometimes if caught early enough,perhaps can be rectified.
if the eyes look like they are just about to pop out...he has pop eye...
can't think of a treatment off the top of my head right now...
if none of the above apply..then perhaps she is just pregnant again,
and all is well.
may i ask what is the ratio of males to females ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

no worries...
i hope you don't mind me saying this.....but it would be better for her
if you got another female or two,as he will constantly hound her,and
it will impact on her health.
