Default Azureus breeding or aggression?

I brought home a pair of Azureus from NARBC recently and was told they were a male and a female. I had them in their own tank for a few days and they were fine, then added them to my main tank with only 1 other Azureus I've had for 1.5 years and expect to be male. The male I bought from the show almost instantly started showing signs of what I believe to be aggression, but only when in the trio of frogs. When either frog (the new female or the frog I've had for a while) is alone with the new male they get along fine for hours. But anytime I put the new guy in the trio he instantly tries mounting both frogs and they normally squirm away. I have heard no calling from any frogs. Is this frog just too big to be put with the other two and is showing its dominance? Or is it just really trying to breed? Like I said, I've heard no calling so I could have the sexes all wrong. Here is a video I shot of the new male on top of the frog I've had for a while. It ends just before I broke them up and moved the new frog back into the qt tank. Thanks for any advice.

Definitely agression

Here's a video I posted a while ago. It's not very great footage but a pretty good example of courting behavior.
