Ceiling Fan and Light - 2 switches?


Hi there- I recently installed a ceiling fan w/light:

[wall : fixture]
red - blue
black - black
white - white
green - green

Anyway, only one switch controlls both the light and the fan. I would like to seperate the two. It already looks like both switches share a black connection. However, the black from the wall is connected to the second switch but at the bottom connector where the "shared" black wire is connected. Can I simply disconnect this wall black and reconnect to the top portion of the second switch?
