Dunk them both in the pool, and rinse a few choice shells in saltwater. If they are serious though, one will continue to attack the other and will need contained separately.

I ended up separating them and the attacker is in a 10 gal. It was very scary, I heard chirping from PPs for the first time. Just seeing a big pincer open a milimeter from a leg got my nerves up

Hermit jail time. One of my crabs was a bully. Lost all his friends from his antics.
