Is This an egg tube on my red devil? Help

Flowerhorn1and1red1devil

Hi I have 1 red devil and it seams to be getting very aggressive it is around 6 years old. I noticed a drastic increase in size of its nuchal hump and a small tube looking thing on the bottom of the fish. Is this an egg tube?

It is a breeding tube, yes. I think it looks more like a male tube though, which the nuchal hump would also suggest. However, it is more unusual for a male tube to show if he doesn’t have a mate, while a female will spawn alone. If I am wrong and it’s a female you will soon see some eggs.
