Newly pregnant tetra??

Hello!! I took a look at my 5 neon tetras today and noticed 2 had a bump that was even on both their bellies. I can't tell if they are pregnant or not!! Does anyone have a picture of a NEWLY pregnant neon tetra?

Tetra's cannot become pregnant, they are egg layers and so the eggs are fertilized after they fall from the mother. Most Tetras need very specific conditions to want to breed so I doubt that they're full of eggs either. Many female tetra's do simply have a belly anyway even if they don't have eggs, it's just natural. Also their eggs are extremely photosensative so even in the event that they do lay eggs, the light turning on in the morning will destroy the eggs. :/
