Texas cichlid laid eggs

The other night my texas cichlid laid eggs and i was wondering if anyone in the tank with her would be able to fertelize them. I do not know anything about breeding really. I was thinking that she is still infertile because shes about 2.5 inches maybe a little bigger. Could it be lossible that an oscar or pacu could fertelize them to make some sort of hybrid? Those are the only 2 fish she does not chase away from the eggs

I guess anything is possible, but I would think highly unlikely. I believe there is a short time frame from when the eggs are laid and when they have to be fertilized, otherwise they are usually snacks for the tank mates. We raise mouth brooders, so I am not up on egg layers, just my guess for whatever that is worth. We do have a German Dwarf Ram female and she pseudo spawns about every couple of months, only actually seen the eggs one time. The fish must be having snack time during the night... If those eggs are not eaten and start looking fuzzy, you need to remove them.
