The mating dance looks very similar to aggression...you are seeing aggression if both fish are confirmed males.

It is common for all-male tanks to need some swapping out of fish until you get a peaceful mix where most fish are colored.

Sometimes they will work it out but if there are injuries and/or the victim fish cannot swim about the tank eventually, you may have to rehome one of them.
