Question Mark Bruised beak

Could this be from fighting? Because Cappy and nibs have been fighting a lot over little things like string and food. But the weird thing is, Cappy hasn't got a scratch on her :/

They almost look more like stains in that picture. It's kind of odd that they're so thin.

How are they fighting? If they're actually biting each other (not the open-beak lunge, but actually closing their beak and biting) you may need to think about splitting them so no one gets hurt. But even so, I don't think a cockatiel would get bruises like that from fighting.

And beak bruises generally aren't painful and will go away as the beak grows out, so they're nothing to worry about. You'll just want to figure out what happened, so he isn't constantly getting bruised.

They don't fight badly, just a lot of beak bashing. It's a very loud "crack" noise when their beaks collide. I've just ordered a second cage so I can separate them, Nibs has become very overpowering lately. Not in a mating sense, he's just become a bit of a bully to be honest! They are not stains because there is nothing in my room or their cage that could cause that. Cappy has a very sharp beak, maybe these are scratches/bruises from the beak bashing?

I took him to the vets yesterday regarding a nose bleed and after lost of tests (including him getting gassed and having a swab shoved down his throat), she said he seems perfectly healthy and maybe the bleeding and the bruising are due to a lot of beak bashing.
