I have 5 black skirt tetras in a 27 gallon planted tank. The P.H. IS 6.5 AND water temperature is 72 degrees fairenheit. I noticed today that one of the black skirts was a lot bigger then all the others. It has also been following only one other black skirt which has longer fins then the rest. Please help me, I need to know so I can set up a seperate aquarium. Thanks

It cannot be pregnant as these are egg layers.

They are chase spawners and breed in groups. The long finned variant is found in both genders.
Just leave them as they are and don't feed any dried bloodworm or similar in case it is constipation.
