kribensis being aggressive

i have two young (inch and a half) female kribs in a 26 gallon bowfront with a two inch male krib. supposedly they are a schooling species that enjoy each others company, but the male wants nothing to do with the females. since i added them hes been hiding, a drastic change from his previous behavior, and whenever he sees one of them he chases her away. whats the deal?

kribs are generally aggressive and have a teratorial nature i have one breeding pair two spare males and two lots of juvi offspring (fish shop wants them at half adult size so they will be going soon)in a 30g there is always some sort of dissagreement even between the breeders going on but nobody comes to any harm breaking up the tank with rocks,wood and plants helps
