Do not believe there is any definitive answer. As stated this is not something confined to fish belonging to the cichlid family and also as stated,,, there are many reasons why fish may or may not inhale and spit out food while eating.Some cichlids also spit fry or babies out while caring for them along with some species of catfish.My own theory is... Theyr'e eyes are bigger than their bellies.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Yep, all my fish do this except for the loaches & catfish. Catfish & loaches are little pigs and would never give up a bit of food for fear that someone else will come along and steal it.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
