bloated looking mollie fry...help??

So i have 5 dalmatian/lyre-tail fry in a 30 gallon tank(they are separated from the other fish with a tank divider) it has heater, filter, gravel plants and places to hide,the filter isn't on the fry's side of the tank. I just noticed today that one of my fry is very bloated looking. i feed them hard boiled egg yolk sometimes, mostly baby brine shrimp and crushed flake food. So what could this be from?? anything i can do to fix it? and should i quarantine it? ill put pics of em on this as soon as they get to my email.
