Ya they will work it out. Its all part of growing up for them. Deciding who gets to be the female (boss). Same as newly married couples lol.
(without the sex change)

Hey one more thing I have noticed about these little guys..First of one of them has a little case of ick...Due to what I believe was the stressful ride back from the shop... Every once in a while they twitch...not all the time but id say a few times a day...Is this normal, or am I just worrying to much...Sheesh i feel like an obsessive father with a newly born baby! haha

Ich isn't caused by the ride. Its caused by a parasite. You need to QT them and treat them for the ich and qt any new fish you get before they go into your tank. (usually 4-6 weeks) Leave the tank with no fish for that period of time as well. The twitching is also normal and is usually done by the submissive clown.
