Question pregnant platy or just fat?

I just got her a couple days ago and shes either pregnant or just fat. Larry chases her all the time and she shows no interest. Since shes the only female he goes for should I go out and get another female red calico so he gives her a break?

if you have the room in your tank then maybe get 2 more females and a closer pic would help people identify if she is or isnt pregnant :):):)

so i took aggressive male to the LFS and asked for a smaller male red calico and another mickey mouse female. I showed the guy which ones too, I only looked away for a second. When I got home no one chased anyone....guy gave me 2 females. Now Marty is the only guy with 6 girls. My LFS = incompetant ppl.
