    they have spawned, they are mouthbrooders and the male of the species carries the eggs in his buccal cavity which he extends. furthermore, it also appears to be the male by the trailing second dorsal fin.

    Yeah mine have done this as well. These eggs were obviously eaten very quickly by everything in the tank. I always considered moving him into a "hang inside the tank" hatching net enclosure but did not want to disturb him :)
