Usually on the first day or so there will be some fighting. Turn your lights out and maybe move a few pieces of rock around will help. BTW welcome to AA

In my honest oppinon thats too many fish for that sized tank. Royal Gramma's are known to act aggressive towards their kind and Firefish are very similar in shape and this could also be it.

I agree with Tito. You are going to have this issue because of the size of your tank. I have housed a royal gramma and a fire fish in a much larger tank together and had no issues. This is mainly because they were able to have their own space. In your tank they aren't going to get that.

Yah...that may be too small of realestate for a gramma and a firefish. Grammas are not too agressive but they are territorial. I do not think a 14gal is big enough for both.
