Default Gouramis Bloat?

So i have 4 gouramis, 1 male and i just noticed that it seems puffed out behind the gills, its fairly simetrical on both sides and i i'm just wondering if it could be one of the following:
-the actuall disease
-trying to puff itself up to make it self look more dominant (i have an over stocked tank with a lot cichlids so perhaps it wants to look bigger)
-when they breed they blow bubbles that stay at the surface, could it be preparing to blow bubbles.

those are the only things i can i think of, so any advice or suggestions is greatly appreciated
