if the fish is attacking at night then things are not really fine between the two of them. One of these days the JD will build up the courage to attack with the lights on.

Depending on your tank size, you might be able to buy a divider. You can make them out of lexan, plexiglass, or 'egg-crate' for florescent lighting.

Here's a video of someone making a divider for a 55 gal out of acrylic. You could use lexan or plexiglass instead.

I would rehome/retank one of them. A divider will cut their swimming room in half, and they still could be stressed by seeing each other.
