Not much you can do - she will either digest the eggs or she will spawn with a male or several.. you will find the eggs scattered all over the tank (glass, filter, leaves etc.) if they spawn.
Healthy female cories are always nice and big and round & fat looking

I've never had cory's but i've read that if you want your cory's to spawn you should lower the temp of the water a little to simulate rain. Supposedly thats when they lay their eggs.-10g-
3 Red Tail Rasbora
2 Pristella maxillaris
2 Velvet Swords

Cories are egg layers,not live bearers,and cannot be pregnant.
