Default P. bicolor behavior

I have had these two Phyllobates bicolor for roughly 8 months now and would assume they are only 10 months out of the water (got the frogs from Josh's and they claim they send froglets at 2 months). I have noticed the smaller of the two frogs seemed fairly "aggressive" during feeding and would tackle or jump onto the bigger frog's back. Knowing that they are still immature, is there a chance that they are both males?

Phyllobates arent usually territorial however when a feeding response is triggered they have zero concern with boundaries. Not only will they jump on eachother they will eat flies off of other frogs. I have seen similar responses before. With feeding and with a male calling where frogs will chase and jump on another frog, but it is nowhere close to the aggressive wrestling that happens between territorial frogs. It is a lot more obvious. I (think) it happens with new frogs or newly introduced frogs and will just stop happening completely over time. Youve had yours for a while though. Have any of them started calling yet?

My Bicolor never display any aggression.

They do however turn into clumsy idiots and get really excited at feeding time.

I don't think you need to worry. My males will sit facing each other and call, but they never tackle each other.
