Question what are my africans doing????

ok so i just got some new fish yesterday x2 yellow labidochromis (about 2 and a half inches long) and x2 electric blue johannis (about three inches long). one of the blues is noticbly way more aggressive than the other. his fins are pretty much always always spread and full of color. but for the other johanni it doesnt spread its fins as much as the other one. but heres what im curious about. when they are together the darker one does a vibrating type thing i guess but its only when the other joihanni is near. is this a territorial thing or a display for breeding?? i did read that those guys are sexually mature at about this size, not even sure if i got a pair and i wont vent them. any advice would be cool~

Tank is 55
sand bottom
planted tank

P.S ill try to get a picture of the two fish for you guys but they dont really stand still Money

seeing has you just started this set up and put the fish in, the darker one is showing/telling that he is the dominant one and usually displays the more vibrant color(s).

just seemed ignorant of you to say something like that when it was a genuine question.
