No, it may just be fatt and how many other swordtails are in the tank

maybe fat as suggested or could be a preggy. Once they are preggy once they are almost never not preggy.

pregnant but not going to give birth for a couple weeks
she is definantly pregnant all livebearers are almost never not pregnant because 1 the males wil constantly breed with females if they are of age, and 2 the livebearers store sperm inside themselves so even if they arent with a male if they have been fertilized once they can have up to 4 births without a male in the tank. most females and petstores come pre hit so she is pregnant you can tell when she is going to pop because her gravid spot will be very dark and she will look more like a box and less round
