Help!False laying eggs! NEED QUICK REPLY!!

my mustard gas female has been releasing her belly of eggs just now when I did a WC. She released quite a lot ( 40 - 70 ). There's still a belly of eggs, but somethings not right. She had a little BTF trait at her caudal fin, after releasing, the BTF trait actually turned into blue ish. Her rays are also not as obvious as before. She had also ate a few eggs.
What will happen to her? Will she few depressed or anything? Also, Im getting a MG male soon, so should I breed the female? Would it be ok to just leave her to keep releasing the eggs and eat it? If I should breed, can i just condition the pair for 1 week? Im kinda afraid she'll release the whole thing at eat it. ADVISE PLEASE!

Mature female will make eggs all her life and either absorb them or drop and eat them, some don't eat them and you will see them in their tank.
This is normal behavior

She should be fine and fine for breeding later as well-provided that you had been making regular water changes to maintain water quality

I would make a water change to get the uneaten eggs out so not to foul the tank

Will she overfeed herself by eating the eggs? I change my water once every 3 days.

Usually they don't have any problems when eating their eggs and they digest them pretty fast and often you will see white or light colored poop and this is normal too.

Even when they look bloated as long as they are asymptomatic-its all normal...

I agree with OFL. It's perfectly normal.
