Question Fighting brothers

i have 2 hamsters and they are brothers but at night i have been hearing loud squeaking and at first i thought they were play fighting but today when i held 1 he had dried blood all over him but the other hasn't

is it best to split them up for a bit or for good?

What type of hamsters are they?

If they are drawing blood it is best to separate them before they can do further damage which would require medical attentions or even be threatening.

I had that problem when i bought 3 sisters, i put one on her own and the other two together in the same cage. But the smaller russian, got a bad injury, so had too split them up for good, or it would just keep happening!!
