Are these GBR egss? (Pics)

Here are some pictures, it might be hard to tell but it looks like they cleared out the rock and the eggs are of a more brownish dark color compared to the sand, i was suspecting them of breeding because they Are acting very aggressive to my other fish but they arnt really closley gaurding them? Anyways i was hoping you could help me out with this? Thanks

they do look like ram eggs, keep in mind that it takes cichlids a while befor they become good parents, my kribs for example are working on there 3rd batch of fry but on the first the girl decided that the dad was no good...so she killed him, the reason i mention this is that if they arnt guarding that much then they may end up eating the egg or what ever due to in experiance. what elce is in the tank?

I agree...to all of the above. . They look like ram eggs...but they will likely eat them themselves if no tank mates get them first.
