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.

Yep, it's holding some eggs or fry from the looks of your pics.

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.
