sick neon?

Hi,
I have 4 guppies, 1 male platy and 4 neon.. in the last couple of days I've noticed that a couple of the neon are really fat, as if pregnant, which I know it couldn't be since they lay eggs.. my male platy is also a little larger..
Their diet has changed from just flakes to also spirulina brine shrimp..
Is that normal or should I worry about any disease?
Thanks

try changing their diet again. feed them very small amounts of flakes only and see if they get back to normal.

maybe the dry brine shrimp is causing them to bloat?

I was suspecting bloating, so we considered not to feed them today.. we just feed them once a day and small portions..
well, this morning the neon were back to normal, but we found all the fishes eating from the gravel in one corner of the tank.. now we suspect the laid eggs after all and were having a feast..
thanks
