electric rams not getting along

i have two electric blue rams. the problem is that larger one continuously harasses the other smaller one. it follows the small ram everywhere. the larger one is showing beautiful colors, while the one being chased is always so pale it looks completely white and spends most of its time hiding in plants. there are two open swimming spaces. will these two ever get along? is it normal? is there anything i can do to alleviate the aggression?

60 gallon tank - Stock:
2 electric blue rams
7 guppies
6 glofish
2 dwarf gouramis
5 cory cats
1 rainbow shark

readings as of this morning:
0 ammonia
0 nitrite
10 nitrate
7.0 ph

My guess is the meanie is a male and the one being chased is female.... my male chased the female for 2 days non stop then they mated peacefully... lol
The one has been being chased for about two weeks so I don't think it's that but thanks
If the male wants to breed and female isnt ready, that is the result. Electric blues are hard to sex until they breed.
Those characteristics sometimes are true, sometimes not. The sure way to tell is.when their breeding tubes are out.
