Zebra Danio Fin nipping, Should I separate?

ASquidabs0727

I have 2 zebra danios in a 10 gallon tank. A while ago they were in a school of 6 in a 20 gallon aquarium. Unfortunately some passed away (filter incident and old age). ): This was a while ago and they’ve always fin nipped eachother. I know the cause of this is because their not in a school anymore. I can’t buy more as I am in college (they stay at my moms) and simply can’t have another 5 year commitment. Any ideas to lower the fin nipping? The male is clearly harassing the female. Never have laid eggs or anything these two. I’m going to add taller plants to offer more hiding but should I just get a divider? I also have another 5 gallon I can put one in. Feel bad having to keeping them alone tho ): Also makes it more difficult for my mom to take care of them.
Any suggestions are helpful. Thanks in advance.

My danios always nipped at each other, no matter how many there were. Kept them from going after other fish i think.
