    Is my clownfish pregnant or just bloated?

    Woke up this morning and I saw my female clownfish stomach is big, not quite sure if she is carrying eggs or just bloated. I feed them every two days and don’t really over feed them. Haven’t noticed them cleaning one specific area either but the male clownfish is doing the little dance around her.
