Never heard of a fish shivering.
How does the water test for ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, and ph?

its prob something that has to do with being dominant or showing dominance to the other fish.

Maybe. The tank is a little small, to house both fish as well. Does not leave much room for the one to get away.

your neighbors needs to upgrade their tank size..............2 parrots in a 20 gallon is WAY to small for them........What your seeing is a display of dominance, and as Twistermom stated, in such a small tank there is nowhere to get away from the dominant fish............Someone is gonna be stressed to the point of death from injuries, or worse, bring some unwanted illness to the tank and create issues for all fish in the tank.........After 30 years, your neighbors should realize their tank is too small for these fish and do the right thing and either rehome them, or upgrade the tank size.......
