What kind of glass fish are they? Cats or tetras? Either way, adding more to the school is usually the easiest and best method to help curb aggression if your tank is large enough to handle it.

Sounds like your Glass Fish are two males and a female, and the boys are interested in mating. Assuming that these are a Parambassis species, they are found in huge schools in the wild, often numbering in the thousands. If it is the common species, you could probably add another in that 10, but I'd say that's kind of a small tank for even the three that you already have.
