Yeah, this is the conclusion that I've come to. If they are spawning and the female is producing eggs, then she is mature enough and if the eggs are getting fertilized, she will hold them. So that only leaves the male not being sexual mature enough to produce enough motile bullets, if any at all in the milt.

Thanks for all of the input guys! They are under 18 months, and the most aggressive group I've had

I looked at tumbler pics and realized the biggest male (i only have 2 fry that survived and the other 22 I got from a breeder) in this tank was born last May so this group is right at about a year!
