Question Very new to this

Just bought my son three betas. He loves them so much! I have one small divided aquarium and a single aquarium. They are small, but I will be the one keeping them clean until he gets older (he is four, so they are really my fish, I suppose! LOL).
Anyway... I am a dummy when it comes to betas and I have a very simple question: will the two males I have in the divded set-up calm down a bit or will they be this aggressive always? I mean, they are gorgeous the way they fan out and posture, but I am afraid that the clear divider the aquarium came with should be tinted or something so that they can see each other but, I dunno... LESS so. I guess I am concerned that they will be overly stressed and not eat because they are always acting nutty at the divider.
Like I said, I am a dummy and I am new to this whole thing. I used to keep salt water fish for many years, and thought betas would be an easy fish for my son and he really loves their "colorful fanciness". I just don't want to screw up and stress his pets to death!

What size are the tanks?

IMO fish shouldn't be able to see through a divider.. if they can see it should be very hard.. aka I don't like clear dividers.

If your tank is too small the fish will be very stressed which can eventually kill them if they feel insecure about their homes.

Do you have places that they can hide in?

Do you have Pics?
