Last time they spawn a ton of eggs and it's their first clutch in 50gal tank, but 2 days ago all the eggs turned white then they ate them all. I'm suspecting they're both female, so please can someone identify their gender. Well I hope you can give me some advice on breeding too
Thank you very much

Not sure on gender, but are likely a pair. Most cichlids take a few tries before a successful breed.

Unless ya catch em in the act it'll be almost impossible to tell the genders apart from one another untill they get to around hand size. Once they are that big it becomes a tiny bit easier but only due to the male growing out a kok while the female will just get boxier over time. With your 2, they are still to small to sex them properly. Granted tho, if they aren't trying to kill each other that's a pretty good sign they have paired up lol.

Post pictures of their tubes next time eggs are going down....a F/F pair wouldn't be all that uncommon. Two tubes shaped like "U" would be bad, you'd like to see a "U" shape, and a "v" shape
