Fish are incapable of perceiving emotions like humans. There's only food, make babies, food, make babies. I know as a passionate member of the community I often find myself thinking if a change I made to my aquarium will make my fish "happy" or do they like their new tank. I don't feel fish are capable of these kinds of feeling, but I often find myself projecting my own feelings onto them.

But if you look in the third photo both the parent fish are in aggressive postures, so the intruder fish probably left because out of fear.

Also let me say congrats on the fish babies!! I've never had much luck getting my cichlids to spawn, but I am going to set up a 30 gallon to try and breed some electric German blue rams.
