Aggression!

Help!!! I have 5 clowns, two of my largest clowns of similar size are trying to kill each other after months of peace and the battle that ensues lasts for half an hour! One of them now has a red mark on its cheeks. I am not sure if the aggression has something to do with food (fighting over shrimp)or the newly installed, homemade CO2 generator for my plants? The smaller clowns get a taste of the aggression when they get too near the dueling fishes! CO2 poisoning (Sounds silly) perhaps? Should I introduce a larger alpha clown to stop this? Any input would greatly be appreciated, thanks! GGG.
