Ok I'm a little confused here, just what exactly are you asking? I tried searching your posts to see if I could get a back story but I can't make heads or tails of them. I'm not sure what the problem was before, but given the photo quality they all look the the same to me. Am I correct in assuming this is the one you thought is gravid or laid eggs?

Its hard to tell from the shot if its bloat because from the top bloat and gravid look similar to me. My females always look fat like that, and they have laid eggs for me.

Looks either well fed or gravid to me. Either way here is a link about bloat. You can have a read through it and see what you think.

Looks to be gravid, I always thought with Bloat under the neck gets swollen too and from your pictures it doesn't seem to look like Bloat.
