Hi! I was just wondering whether anyone could help me! I got these cichlids a month ago and was just wondering what the gender of them were - two of them have gotten a little bit fat so I was wondering whether they were developing eggs or hopefully not cichlid bloat. Any information would be great! One of the fatter one has been moving gravel around the tank and has burrowed inside a cave ornament I have.

Male rift lake cichlids usually have yellow egg spots on the anal (bottom) fin. These are used during breeding. Females don't normally have egg spots.
