altolamprologus calvus fighting

hi so i have had 3 altolamprologus calvus (1 male and 2 females) in my tank for about 4 months now.
at the beginning one of the females stayed at the back away from the more dominate one. however know it chooses to stay out the front of the tank so whenever the more dominate one sees her she basically attacks her bitting her side. the male keeps to himself
is there anyway i can reduce the aggression between the two females?

Is she straying into the other females territory or does it happen throughout the tank? You may have to add some rock work or something to break up the line of sight and give her somewhere to escape to.

It's just all over the tank. There is some places for her to be out if line if sight. I can add some more rock work if need be

Bonded trio only means the male accepted the females and vice versa, not that the females accepted each other. You will likely ony get toleration between those 2
