Ocellatus aggression?

I have a 20 gallon tank with a pair of or occelatus gold, I had 3 but one was really aggressive and the other two appeared to team up and kill him, and the two got along well for a while, but now one has very dark color and sits at the top and the other is like digging around 10 shells, I'm pretty confused about what's going on, should I get more occealtus ?

i assume they are different sexes as one is smaller and darker, while the other is larger and lighter, i put in some guppy fry in attempt to disperse the aggression. as you can see the larger one patrols the entire floor space, while the other is claiming shells meant for decoration at the top lol.
