it can be a mating "test", each making sure the other is "worthy."  I've seen it in bigger new worlds but I have not kept bolivense.  if its gotten to where one is injured, I suggest dividing the tank with an egg crate (overhead light diffuser) cut out.  They can breed through the divider with slate on the female side close to the egg crate.

They are jaw locking. Basically fighting.

I haven't kept this species so I dont know what the real damage that can be caused.
