Sounds like you have 2 males and one female.

The common needs to be removed ASAP. They are by no stretch of the imagination suitable tankmates for fancies because of their powerful swimming. Commons have been known to kill fancies in an attempt to mate with them, and they will also go for fancies' protuding eyeballs, sometimes eating them out of the fancy's skull.
