Everything I could find says it is very rare, although not unheard of, for them to breed in an aquarium. It is more likley a ddispute over territory or an establishment of territory. Not all fighting is aggressive, often they will settle their differences through posturing and positioning and one will simpy concede dominance to the other.

Keep us up to date though and try to keep some detailed records. It would be cool to have some first hand information if they do breed.
