Is this Cichlid "holding"

I wasn't expecting this as all my fish are small but this gal seems to have a mouth full of something today. These are the best shots of it I could get..she is being awfully shy

and what it looks like when she tried to close her mouth.

Yes, but unless there is a male in the tank the eggs are infertile and will not hatch.

I am not good at fish gender Id so I have no idea of the m/f ratio. I would think there would be at least one male out of six, but then again who knows. I suppose I will wait and see.
