is this fish pregnant?

my grandmother gave me fish for my birthday and one of them seems to be bigger in the stomach. i’ve had pregnant fish before and i know what to do, but i’ve never had this kind of fish before so i don’t know if i have to separate it or not. she also doesn’t swim arround as much as my other ones

    Depends on the spices. If this fish has eaten a lot, its not pregnant. I think its pregnant, as the stomach is too big. 

    Plus info for you. Its just a fish, so dont worry. Even if gives babies, none if it will survive, they never do. So enjoy the aquarium looks, and dont be obsessed with pregnant fish. Its just a fish

      "Just a fish"? Really? Such arrogance...

    This is a difficult question to answer. Usually to tell if a fish is pregnant you look for a black gravid spot next to it's anal fin. Because your fish is black it is almost impossible to tell.
