Male Kribensis fighting over female

Hey
So i got 3 Kribensis 2 males and 1 female and that was a mistake i was meant to get 1 male and 2 female but hey we make mistakes. So now they are showing off and getting to know each other the males are fighting over the female. What do i do to stop this?
Add another female remove that male, or will it stop when the female chooses one?
So all help is appreciated.
Jason

Kribensis form pairs not harems so one male and two females wouldn't work anyway, the female not chosen by the male would get harassed by both the other female and the male, I'd say return one of the males, its the only real good solution

Then ya. I'd either move one male to another tank, or get rid of one. Two pairs in a tank that size is suicide.
