I have a kenyi that does the same thing. When my youngest son was two they would face off and go at it. Him on the outside mimicking the kenyi and the kenyi on the inside defending territory.

I've seen newly introduced fish do that and my Peacock still does it when he's bored. I always figured they were sizing up their borders when swimming up and down and seeing their reflection when biting. :-?

It appears to be a normal action of a cichlid. Mine have done the same thing-seems like the fish is showing signs of aggression-nothing to be alarmed about.!
