Pink tongue questions

I've had really good luck with my pink tongues until just now...i've had them since late 2002 (they were babies) and they have grown and flourished. I house them together in a 40 xtra tall with a misting system and feed them everyday 2+ snails and rarely dog food or chicken or worms. The past 2 weeks I've noticed competition around the food plate when there is certainly enough for both of them. this does not happen at every feeding, but typically my "female" drives the male off nutil she gets a mouthful, then he goes and gets his. He seems to be a little lighter on the weight size than the female so im going to seperate them. heres the question, despite what seems to be hemipenal buldging on the sides directly behind the hind legs is it possible/likely that I do not actually have a pair or do you think its just simple squabbling and I should seperate them until breeding time in a few years? Anyone else had any experience with them? I thought I was doing very well with them, and they still are very active, have nice weight and appear heathly. I just fear this new activity.
tks Justin
