Question over eating eggs?

Our peach expelled TONS of eggs today. I know its normal but i think she ate close to all of them. I didn't spend the whole time with her but when i was with her she ate 50 of them at least. Her belly is pretty big at the moment from eating so many... Should i be worried about her over eating?

I would not be worried, female fish lose a lot of important nutrients with their eggs, when they were expelled she figured waste not want not and simply made a meal of them. This is common and precisely the reason males chase them away from their territories, you cant trust em around their babies!

Her waste will likely be pale in future so dont panic right away if you see this, but unless she shows ongoing signs of bloating you can just consider it a large meal
