It could be a sign of nuptual bliss or it could be a sign of aggression and the ritual of dominance. Cichlids are territorial by nature and this could be two males trying to assert dominance, one over the other.
Does your friend know that he has a male and a female? The male will have much more black on his vental fins than the female. The ventral fins will also be longer.
