I have observed in my tank that "who's in charge" can change, as they can gang up on each other, or a picked-on fish will suddenly decide to stand up to their aggressor. I think you will find their little battles very entertaining to watch.
Also, they change colour right before your eyes, depending on whether they are being chased (horizontal stress lines) or standing up to another who is trying to bully them (very deep and brilliant colour/flaring, vertical bars) or if they are the one in charge (also deep colours).
Here's a pic of my tank. I have a mix of live, silk and plastic plants. I hope to switch to 100% live as all my live plants get bigger/fill out. All my plants are beginner/low light plants.
