They’re just doing some sparring there. Keep an eye on them, because it *could* escalate into something damaging. Typically no need to worry unless you can tell that one has conceded the fight and tried to hide with the other seemingly bent on getting after him. What you see there in your tank typically works itself out with no harm done.

I think you need to remove on of the two combatants. the third Ocellaris looking on is likely the female and the two other are ducking it out to see who is the male

Do you think the two fighting could be females?
I think they settled their differences I did not see them fighting today they were all swimming together.
