So I was feeding my mbuna a relized one of my yellow labs are holding. I know it sounds cold but I'm not interested in breeding or raising fry. Will the fry just be eaten when she spits? If this is the case I'm assuming they are going to keep breeding since it's a whole tank of mixed unsexed juvi's that I got about 2months ago. And is it unhealthy for the females if I let it continue.

No it's not unhealthy for females to have babies (biology), not all of the juvies will be eaten (statistics), and yes, if you put males with females they will continue breeding (biology again). If you don't want fry either get rid of all the males or all the females (common sense).

I agree with Momgoose. Don't assume all the fry will be eaten. I made that mistake thinking my population of guppies would not explode in a community tank. I was wrong... So wrong...
