peacock cichlid changing colors

ok so my peacock is 1-2" long and his/her (idk how to tell the diff in these) fins turned a hue of purple when i introduced some new cichlids to my tank a few weeks ago

he also started acting weird he would go up to one certain yellow lab and and turn presenting his side to the other fish and shake then swim away

the yellow lab he keeps doing this to has also been hovering ner the bottom and moving its fins fast like its hovering

now i added some slate rocks to my tank i scrubbed them soaked them then poured boiling water over them before putting them in the tank and now his colors have gotten more purple-ish white-ish and he looks to belosing his broun spots

any of this sound like something anyone has heard of

i just want to know whats going on
and if he/she is sick or just trying to mate or something

oh and another yellow lab i have that is a male and a little larger is doing the hovering thing too and he bites at the gravel so i was thinking hes trying to build a hole to have a female lay eggs in
