Bumblebee and red zebra nudging???

Hi, I was watching fish, and my bumblebee cichlid and red zebra cichlid were in my cave ornament. The red zebra rested it's belly on the gravel and tilted the side while the bumblebee lightly nudged the zebra with his nose and kinda nibbled on it. They then swam out of the cave, and were both fine, no fighting or signs of fungus, bacteria, and scrapes of any kind... Weird of you ask me. Please, any advice.

The zebra is like 3.5 and the bumblebee is easily 4-5 inches...

But it was gentle, like a love nip or something... And what should I expect with breeding?

T-barring is a more often a show of dominance, the dominant fish comes in from the side and the lesser fish tilts to show subservience.

Do you know the gender of your RZ & your Bumble Bee? They may not even be male & female. Gender is an important factor in this question.

No I don't, but how could I tell, that's something I still don't know, petsmart doesn't specify for these fish, and I never thought to ask?
