EB Johannii Moving Gravel

My single Johannii is moving gravel like it is making a nest. Does that mean it is female or male?

So are female Johanniis as aggressive as the males are?

Would adding females to my tank make the one male more aggressive? He's already "on probation."

Mine that moves the gravel and "diggs" and is the biggest in my tank right now is a female... She's the queen of the tank I say bc she is very "*****y" (picks) on the others as I say lol

Adding more females would lower aggression. 1 male to 4 females is good for mbuna. If they play by the mbuna rules...lol
