Cobalts mouth

I have a female Cobalt that is looking kind of weird. She doesn't close her mouth completly. When I looked closer at her it appears that she has something black in her mouth. The underside of her mouth has kind of a small bulge and you can see a black tint. What is this? Does she have something stuck in her mouth that she can't get out? She's acting normal and playing like normal. My first thought was maybe it could be eggs, but I didn't think eggs were black. Please HELP!

My first thought was that she looks like she's holding. Hmm. Perhaps she is holding fry already and not eggs?

Her mouth is stuffed full of something. I just noticed it last night but have been gone all week.

I was just reading your other post. I think it's unanimous that she is holding. Congrats!

I didn't know where to post it. If she was injured, I was hoping someone in the Unhealthy fish section could help. but if she was holding, I was hoping that someone in the Breeding section could help. Sorry for the multiple posts.
