    DefaultSpawning confusion

    I have two P. demasoni spawning at the moment but I can see they are both holding??? I noticed one drop and egg and the other quickly turn to pick it up. I have not seen both drop eggs. So I am wondering if this is a male that is picking up and holding eggs or is it two females spawning? This would be the 1st spawn for my demasoni group.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks

    So having watched them for a bit it looks like one of them is picking up eggs, holds them for awhile and then eats them. I assume this is the male. The female is still holding the eggs that she manages to get before he does.
