Is it male-female "I love you" lipping?... or male-male "this is my tank!" lipping?

My Midas just bit off the lower lip of a smaller green terror living in his tank. The GT survived but it wasn't pretty. They might not look like they are doing damage to eachother but they are, I would remove one of the fish if I were you.

Definitely at least put a divider between them. I have kept Red Devil (labiatus) for over 40 years and Midas (citrenellum) for over thirty years and I can't tell you how many I have lost in a very short time trying to keep them together. I have had them spawn together many times, only to have one kill the other.
