Cichlasoma manageunse

Hopefully these two are mating - they have made three nests in the tank and sent the three male convicts living with them to the surface at one end and are forcibly keeping them there.
This is the nest in the center of the tank and the male can be seen here aggresively pursuing the female. They are also engaging in lip locking (full mouth extension) behaviour.
