Years ago when I first had bettas I used to love watching them flare. I'd get a small mirror and hold it to the side of their bowl. But, I did it so often that eventually the bettas got used to their own image and stopped flaring.
I don't know if the same thing would happen if you kept the same two bettas side by side for a long time. I do know that some females in a sorority get used to each other and stop flaring whenever they see each other (even though they don't see each other all the time).
