    I've got six bronze cory cats. I noticed last night they were looking especially big. I checked them today, five have these hump things on their chest. Four of the hump things are a different colour than the rest of their bodies. I thought maybe they were sick, but they look lively and happy as ever, so I'm wondering if maybe they're pregnant? Or just fat

    Hard to tell without visuals. One person's idea of fat isn't the same as another person's idea of fat.

    Right, my bad. I'm horrible with a camera but I'll go and try to snap a few shots.

    I've got some pictures but my internet connection is unbearably slow at the moment... I'll post them when it gets better.

    Here we go! :)

    You can't see the colour difference, but with four of the cories the little hump thing is a dense white.

    Female Cory when adult will mature with eggs ragardless got mate or not.

    The picture more like she ate alot as is alot more vertical than lateral fattening. I cant't tell whether she is mature or not.

    Ooh, I didn't know that. Well I've had these guys for about a month now and there's been some serious growth since I've gotten them, so I think four of them must be mature, and the other two are just lil fatties. :) Too bad.. I was kind of hoping for some baby cories.

    As mention, vertical fattening is more due to much food eaten which expands their stomach.
