A bigger tank would give them more space to avoid confrontations. Keep an eye on them. Sometimes they'll do this more "playfully" as part of the mating ritual or just to establish dominance but sometimes it can be indicative of a bigger problem waiting to happen.

If they're doing serious damage to one another I would suggest separating them. Whether that means separate tanks or a divider is up to you. Keep the water quality pristine and be prepared to use anti-bacterial and anti-fungal meds should infection set in.
