During feeding time my newts hugged eachother and kind of fighting under the water. I was wondering if the one who started it was trying to stop the one from finding the food or was it a mating embrace because the food was no where near them

Based on your avatar picture and the behavior you described, I assume you're talking about taricha granulosa. Mine do the same thing. They get excited about the food. Even if they weren't close to the food, it's likely that they could still smell it when it hit the water. There's really nothing to worry about.
