Ok so I have tried the mirror thing to and it does seem to work but i think maybe having 2 mirrors would work allot better. There is still some aggression but it is slowly going away

Though i would update on the mirror thing. So far there is still aggression between the two. I am really contemplating taking them out and re placing them into the tank after moving rock around.
