Question Bolivian Rams!!

I know they're technically not the big guys, like you're all talking about. I have a 48 Gallon tank, and I have four of them. I have no aggression problems, or anything of the sort. Does anyone know why I'm not supposed to have that many? My tank is full of live plants, and plenty of Hiding spaces with driftwood, and a few caves. They also share it with a pair of Keyholes, a glass catfish, three scissortails, a king male betta, a honey gourami, a pleco, and two banjo cats. (whom are smaller than them). I have three females, and a male.

rams often pair up indefinatly for breeding and will get agressive toward the other 2 females and fish, maybe thats why

See, that's the other thing, I've had them for over six months now..... maybe I didn't sex them right? they do lip lock on occasion, but nothing serious.

Behaviors can change quite a bit when fish, especially cichlids, reach sexual maturity. If the keyholes or rams pair up, there may be issues.
