These fish seem to be hitting each other, is it possible that they are both males? Thanks in advance.

I got these rams yesterday but don't know the gender. Can someone help me? They seem to bump into each other once in a while.

HI there,
Looks like you have a pair of GBR to me. The female has the pink belly while the male does not.

One is male and the other is female. Maybe it is some spawning behaviour.

Thanks for the replies, when will they start to spawn?

If you give them hiding spots primarily, caves they should start to breed.

However, please do take in mind that once they are in breeding mode they will terrorize anything else in the tank, like all Cichlids do. Do you have anything else in the tank with them?
