Two Curviceps Cichlid in battle mode

This morning I added two curviceps cichlid to my 6 gallon tank. I then sprinkled some food in, and *bam* they started feeding. I then noticed one sort of nudging the other. I sort of looked like aggresion. Should I be worried? Please help. :(

I'm sure one of the more experienced members can confirm my suspicion.. My blue gouramis do the same thing (2 females) when they feed, kinda like theyre hording it for themselves, but nothing ever comes of it. If they are fine when they ARENT feeding I wouldnt worry about it :)

2 curviceps in a 6 gallons is too much unfortunately. A 30 gallons would be the minimum so space will be sufficient for them to establish territories with.
