I'm a bit worried about one of my corydoras. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a gigantic belly on one of them and thought he or she was sick. I posted in another forum and a couple of members said she was gravid. Well it has been a couple of weeks and there is no difference in the size of the belly.
Tank information:
65 gallon (36" long) planted with small smooth gravel, ph 6.8, water soft (peat extract), ammonium 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 10 ppm. Water changes 50% every 5-7 days.

Basically the cory seems happy and is very active, I'm just concerned because I have never seen such a fat belly and the fact that it was not that way a few weeks ago?

Is this something for me to be worried about? Any ideas what it could be?

That fish doesn't look gravid to me especially in the second pic tbone. The shape and size of the swollen area look wrong. Can you try to get some more side profile shots please?

Cake or death?
