They're normally really aggressive towards fish the same size and smaller

I always heard they were aggressive.

Yes they can be aggressive and it can be especially difficult to add a new fish to a tank occupied by an RTS. He's not happy about the intruder in his territory. I think you'll need to find temporary alternative accommodation for one of them.

In the wild some fish species need to control a territory in order to have enough food available to survive, so the behaviour in that case would be completely understandable.
