I suspect or think my electric yellow lab is holding egg and will lay them then hold in her mouth OR she could have bloat or something because she is fat. I know they are mouth-brooders . I feed them everyday flakes and pellets.

Mbuna's (at least from what I've seen) show little or no external indication they are full of eggs. I've seen females drop 30-40 eggs and they looked no plumper than the male they were spawning with.

How often do you feed per day?

Sometimes twice a day I try once a day and feed pellets + flakes.
