Lightbulb Male Guppy Looks . . . PREGNANT?! O.o

I have 4 male guppies in my 10 gallon along with 5 lamb-chop rasboras (I need to bump up their school, I know. ). One of them looks very pregnant. I was certain it was a male, but it has this massive lump on it's belly. I noticed one of the other males harassing it, then all of a sudden it had this massive lump . . . Maybe it's a tumour? I'm lost. I'll post some pics later.

Are you sure he hasn't gotten a little extra food? Or is it more like a growth?

Take a look at the anal fin.If the anal fin has a small projection,it's a male.If the anal fin looks like a fan,it's a female.(this is the easiest way of telling)

Yes females do look like males sometime.

It's INFLATED, like I mean HUGE. He eats just as much as the other guppies.

I realized I have to wait for my phone to charge to take a video. -.- I'll probs have one up within an hour.

I checked, and he has no gravid spot, so it can't be pregnant.

I would take a photo, but it's impossible as the little fish never stop moving.
