My two bearded dragons one of them I have had since he could fit in a Chinese container and the other one two years later and they where the same size the first one was a male and the next one was a female we have had them in the same cage since we got them but lately that have started to angle there body’s at each other and bite each other’s tails they have never done this in three to four years of being in the same cage and I don’t know why they started the only thing different is we swapped cage to a slightly bigger one and there food to super worms instead of meal worms any help would be awesome

That's because they're in the same tank. Immediately separate them or else the one that bit the other will actually start trying to kill it.
It doesn't matter how long they've been together for, they will tolerate each other but not like each other.
The only thing that I can think of that would help, is to separate them.

Bearded dragons are never to be housed together-- one becomes dominate and the other will suffer- please separate them ASAP--

The day has come for them to be separated. If you do not do this ASAP, this will eventually be the end result. These two dragons were raised together for two years till one of them snapped. Dragons do not like the company of other dragons, they are solitary creature, very territorial and, will fight for their domain (to the death at times).

The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!
