for me i have 4
1 angel (the biggest) always has his dorsal and anal fin all the way out
while most of the time the other 3 there dorsal and anal fins are usually slanted back

i haven't really read any thing about this particular topic but i would say from my own experience and their actions that it is a display of dominance because also the biggest one i have is a male with 2 females and then the smallest one i have is another male

in this pic u can sorta see the male in the center with his fins all the way up and the 2 females are slated back
