Severum eggs?? Can someone identify?

Just curios, got home from work and found this. Have noticed that this particular gold severum and my green severum have suddenly become territorial. Have they paired and started breeding?

Those eggs don't look like they're fertilized, are they white? It's not uncommon for two females to pair and lay eggs, any idea the sex of the fish?

Haven't sexed the fish... Not really sure how to. Have another gol severum that is much more full in color, guessing that's the male...

Cool thanks! Was thinking I really don't have the space to have them breeding considering there is a 10" Oscar in there as well.
