My little community was so peaceful... Till now

So I had these 2 female American-flag fish. But I wanted a male too. So I got one last night. One of the "sisters" seems to have paired up with the male, and they are being peaceful. But the third-wheel sister is being a little witch to everybody in the tank now. So my question is, if I added one more male, would it help? Or should I just rehome the offending female? When it was just the girls, she was way more peaceful. The male is so pretty I don't want to get rid of him.
Thanks for any opinions!

IMO get rid of what you can. Having two pairs in a tank usually does not work well in most community setups unless you have a big tank.
