Breeding pair or just friends

Well after having my bolivian rams for a month and a half, they have finally stopped hating each other and started to pair up. Is this a mating pair or is just friends? I havent been able to sex them yet and just last week they were on opposite ends of the aquarium frequently lip-locking.

I wouldn't raise my hopes that they are pairing up to breed.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

will males and females fight or is it just male vs male or female vs female?

The only time mine seem to lock lips is when they are eating pellets i put in for the corys. I can't get them to go to the top to feed they rarely go up past half way the tank and the platys and mollys very rarely let any food make it past half way.So basically the only food they mostly get is the shrimp pellets.
