Fighting cichlids

Hello,

My male dragon blood and what I think is my female yellow ob tends to go at it from time to time. Where they open their mouths to fight then will spin around in a circle no one else in my tank does tbis except these two. Any ideas?

They are having some domination dispute. One will hopefully back down, or they may need to separate.

She stays on one side of the tank while he digs on the other

Actual fighting involves locking jaws, circling is to establish dominance or a courtship display.
