Please help me with my flower horn, she lays eggs but after that she eats them all. She has no partner yet.

Perhaps she should get a partner? Lots of fish will eat their own, I don't know that is particularly unusual for a fish to eat their own eggs.

That's pretty normal. Healthy fish tend to lay eggs and eat unfertilized eggs, whether they have a mate or not. Sometimes they'll eat their own fertilized eggs too, especially their first spawn or two.
