Mouthbrooders carry eggs right from spawning time, picking them up as they go, and hold them for about 2-3 weeks, maybe a bit longer, until the fry are completely developed. If she's holding, you should see her mouth bulge, so she looks kind of like she has a chin. Not eating is a good sign if its a healthy fish, but it could be other factors as well.
