Ram cichlid spawning

Hi all,

So this morning one of the rams has laid eggs on a rock and is guarding it fiercely from the other fish. My question is this. There is uncertainty over the sex of the other Ram, thus how do I know if the eggs are even fertile? Here are some pics

This is the 'male' too, it's MUCH bigger than the egg layer, although I think that is his only male trait... What are the key differences... I will see if I can get better pics!!!

Looks like some of the eggs are fertile, so looks good, you will know if they all turn white tomorrow, then they did not get fertilized.
