Or they are establishing dominance, definetly a sign of maturing. You should get a pair soon.

the most interesting thing is that one of them has always been the most passive, timid fish i keep. now (s)he is seemingly very willing to "go a round" when provoked.

I have never seen my female cichlids mouth fight against each other or against a male; the males will do it for dominance and to show off for the ladies.

Interesting my pair does it all the time. I know they are boy - girl since I have had swimmers from them.
