Weird, forbidden, love - Ram Chiclid and Empire Gudgeon

Hello all,
Well, something weird occurred in the tank the other day. A visitor to the aquarium, a male Mikrogeophagus ramirezi whom we will babysit over the summer, apparently made our Hypseleotris compressa feel like a man.
I discovered the compressa making advances and showing the full, beautiful, colours that the males of this species get when in heat. The object turned out to be the Ram chiclid who really didn't know what to do. So the two males kept circling each other, while the compressa attempted to persuade the chiclid into some sweet love...
I only managed a few unfocused pictures and a brief video but it does make for interesting watching:
