 After  googling  for  nearly  10  mins,  among  all  Edit  of  answers  this  one  sounded  more  acceptable.
 
 "They  do  that  for  two  reasons,  one  is  to  prime  their  mouths  to  eat  by  stretching  it.  You'll  see  that  right  before  they  eat.  Also,  and  this  will  sound  gross,  they  do  it  to  keep  food  down.  Have  you  ever  began  to  throw  up.  you  gag  once  or  twice  and  then  the  flood  gates  open.  A  fish  will  shove  all  the  food  it  can  into  it's  stomach  and  sometines  that  is  to  much.  So  this  kind  of  gagging  happens  to  allow  them  to  stretch  their  insides  and  keep  the  food  down  to  stopp  the  flood."
 
 Experts  correct  me  if  I  am  wrong.

 All  fish,  not  just  cichlids,  yawn  for  the  second  reason  in  Aquaboy's  post.
 
 All  predatory  fish  yawn  to  align  the  bones  and  ligaments  in  their  jaws,  usually  after  eating.

 "To  frighten   others"  can  be  a  reason?or  in  second  thought  "To  get  more  water  in  order  to  get  more  oxygen  passed  through  the  gills"
 Experts  what  do  you  say?

 Not  only  cichlids  or  predators  but  I  have  also  observed  many  cyprinids  and  gouramis  doing  that.  I  think  other  fishes  like  characins,  loaches,  etc  also  yawn,  but  their  might  not  be  as  prominent  as  predators.
 Heres  my  FM  yawning.

 Same  as  yawn  to  relax  your  our  jaw  muscels  or  when  we  are  sleepy??  I  think  its  controlled  by  the  brain  and  not  by  us.  Can  we  yawn  purposely??  
 We  yawn  when  your  brain  tells  us  to.  I  think  same  must  be  appicable  to  the  fish.
 
 Just  my  Opinion.

 Could  that  be  the  only  reason,  Rahul?  I  have  seen  some  marine  fish  too,  that  also  stretch  most  of  their  body,  also  their  fins  sometimes.  Just  like  the  animals  do,  we  do.
