The scales seem brighter but not sure if pineconing, feeding tropical flakes, will try and get a pic from different angle

To me it just looks like an egg filled female...unless, like Sprinkle said, you see "pineconing" of the scales. Try alternating foods & feeding a bit less or a bit less often. Some fish tend to overeat given the oppotunity...
