I can not tell. He haven't ate in a week, but doesnt look any different to me. Its a Melanchromis Maingano, however its only 2 inches and i am going to guess 6 months old. Could somebody help me. I just moved yesterday, but the cichlid stopped eating a week ago, all of my cichlids are the same size and one of the Melanchromis Maingano died yesterday.

The females hold the eggs. that's pretty young to start breeding, but anything is possible. If its holding you should notice it constantly chewing.
