Decision height is for instrument landing and not separation. As low as you can go without letting the wheels touch the runway is the decision height in your scenario. While remaining 2.5NM from the aircraft in question or 500ft above it of course. Thus the reason we just go around once over the runway.
Can that 2.5nm minimum separation can be less than that with TBS?
