Male Guppy showing off to other male

I have a male showing off to another male (they seems to both do it). They're both different, one is snakeskin and the other has blotches of colour, maybe they're confused?

They both definitely male as they both have the same long anal fin.

Is this common? I know that guppies tend to want to shag anything with a heartbeat but I've never seen them persist with other males as much as they do with females?

My tank has mirrored sides so the male guppy I have does this aggressive like "dance" when he sees his own reflection, thinking he is looking at male competition in the tank. After a while he gets bored and goes on to harass the females lol

What is your male:female ratio?

I've heard guppies do best with 1 male for every 2 females.
