Pretty much a newbie in Africans. First off, I think one of my rustys is holding, what say you? I just noticed it last night. I know that they typically hold for 23-28 days, without witnessing the actual spawning and fertilizing, how can one tell how far along a holding female is?

I am not seeing anything from that angle. Is she eating?

Kind of chases food around with all the others, but havent seen her open her mouth and actually eat anything.

It is difficult to tell with that picture. Under the mouth will have a noticeable bulge if the female is holding. You really can't mistake it when you compare to fish that aren't holding.
