Absolutely. Males are of course the most aggressive, but females can be as well. If you want to do alll females to lessen aggression I'd say you might be able to get away with extra fish in the tank. But all are different so I would just watch their behavior every time you add a new fish. You'll see the submissive fish cowering in a corner, happened to me and I removed the weaker fish.

14gallon(heavily planted)- 1 Blue Ram, 5 Green Tiger Barbs, 1
Spotted Raphael Catfish, 1 Bumble Bee Catfish, 2 Golden
Chinese Algae Eater
1gallon- Blue/Orange Betta-male
Large Vase #1- Blue/Yellow Betta-male
Large Vase #2- Blue/Black Betta-male

Of course, a tank full of only females isn't going to be anywhere near as attractive as a tank with mixed sexes or even males only.

Cichlids can be aggresive so I would make sure they are compatible :)
