Well,  you got three breeding size fronts that u tossed together.  That's the biggest problem you have.  The next biggest problem you have is that you can't add anymore at that size to a 75 gallon tank.  And if you add smaller,  say 2 or 3" they are gonna get killed or stressed to death.

This aint what you want to hear but you only have 4 options in my opinion:

1.  Get a bigger tank.  A 125 with a 6' footprint and add 3 - 5 more fronts of near size.

2.  Get rid of the two females and add some synos to keep the male company.

3.  Get rid of all 3 to someone who can properly house them.

4.  Hope that they simmer down and work it out.  I personally don't see this working but ya never know.

I hope that option 1 is doable for you.

I'd add a few other smaller ones if you can.  It will give the male something else to chase.

Three in a 75 is doable.  But....there is always a but.  Three that grew up together and worked out a pecking order is the way to go.  You don't have that option.  You have 3 that you put tpgether and they are trying to work it out in a small space so it's hard on them.  Watch them carefully over the next few weeks.  You may have to remove both females if one gets too roughed up.  This is because if you remove just one,  then the male will rough up the remaining female. 

Before my next suggestion though,  what size are these fish?  Very useful info I need.

You just have the three in what size tank?  You may need more room.  You may need more females.  Try some rock work and hiding spaces.  They may just need to adjust, but need to seek shelter.
