Question is my cichlid carrying eggs?

two of my cichlids keep rubbing against eachother for about three days now. one of them is getting real agressive towards the other fish except the one it keeps rubbing on, now they both have a white spot on their tail fins. is it possible that the reason why the cichlid is so agressive is because its carrying eggs?

What species of cichlids are these? Since cichlids are mouth brooders it is very noticeable when they are carrying eggs. You will often see the female that is carrying the eggs "Toss" them which is kind of like a "chewing" motion.

A picture of the cichlids would also help.

Agree that we need to know what type of cichlids they are?

Pictures would also help to confirm.
