Can these cichlids breed at all together?

These two are acting like they want to and it's strange to me cuz they used to be so against each other. I'm no sure at all I they are male and female. Have no idea how to sex them. But just wondering if anyone knows?Click image for larger version

Just "vented" and white is male blue is female. How does breeding work with cichlids ? Can they actually produce fry?

If they are the same species...more than likely yes!

The female will lay the eggs and pick them up in her mouth and follow the male until he fertilizes them. Then she will lay low for about three weeks until the fry are hatched and swim out of her mouth. If u want to keep and raise the fry I would put her in a tank alone. Good luck!!!

Considering they are both zebras, yes, they can breed.

How long does the female hold the eggs on her mouth. Do I let her spit them naturally or do I strip them? Do I need a fry trap inside the tank for them??
