Well, I can tell you that it is possible for them to spawn together so it's a possibility you are witnessing pre spawning behavior. It's a little unusual that the pair would allow other cichlids to be in their spawning area.
If you are not interesting in breeding them, you should separate them. If you want to see what happens, make sure if they start beating on the other fish in the tank that you take measures to protect your other fish.
As a hybrid, the offspring may be infertile so it can be a one and done for them. You won't know if they are infertile however until they spawn and you see if any eggs hatch.
So you need to decide how you want to go forward. Raising the fry is not the easiest and can be time and money consuming but it can be done. Just know this before you get too far ahead.
