If you want to reduce the overall aggression in the tank, while maintaining the maximum amount of cichlids/species in it? Then yes, you should pull the female HRP out. In your 90 gallon aquarium, it's possible that once a pair bond is formed between the male and female HRP and spawning begins - the unpaired, 'loser' HRP male will be killed. :(

Plus a pair of HRPs will bring down some definite pain on the other residents of your tank in fry-protective aggression. (Not psycho-killer levels like a spawning pair of Neets would, but enough to beat up the other residents pretty badly....).
