Separate them immediately. You should never keep only two females in the same tank.

Females can be just as aggressive as males, they're not called 'fighting fish' for nothing. While you can keep female bettas in groups of 4 or more in heavily planted tanks of 10+ gallons(which is called a Betta Sorority), keeping them in groups of anything less then 4 in tanks any smaller then 10 gallons is just a disaster waiting to happen. They will fight, and they can severely injure or kill one another.

Wink females

You don't want just 2 females in the tank as the dominant one will continue to bully the other. With at least 3 there's always an odd ball. Also make sure you have at least a 10 gallon tank if you have more than one betta. Also somewhere to hide

with lots of plants and a good sized tank you can keep several females. If you don't have a place for the other take a 2 liter soda bottle and cut the top off. Drill holes in sides and bottom and hang with paper clip over the side of tank. Put one female in. Then can get used to each other and you don't need a special tank for the other one.
