Could be two females. They sort of have a pecking order in the tank. The orange one is most likely one of the prominent females.

I always thought the orange one was male as well because it doesn't have the fan shape on the anal fin it's more like a long kinda fin, the orange one normally does go anywhere near her but recently it's changed

Yes it is a male, you can tell by the pic. He is interested in mating. It will continue.

You can add more females so his attention is spread out, and add more plants as sight blocks

definitely a male and they can be terrors when they want to be annoying.

I keep my males and females separate. Females are nice and mellow together. Males constantly pestering one another lol
