How much is too much flaring?

I put my bettas tanks closer together... because in two weeks when QT is over they will be in a divided together i figured eventually they have to get used to eachother... they seem to take breaks from flaring.... what do u guys think?

Just make sure that they're not ripping their fins from the extra flaring, or getting stress lines, etc.

It probably isn't best to let them see each other then if they're flaring non stop. Just make sure that when they're in the tank together, they have absolutely NO WAY of getting to each other. They might just happen to be two very territorial males

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

they stop every now and then... i have a feeling they will get used to eachother and stop entirely which would be awesome... im gonna make a divider out of black mesh so that hopefully it will obstruct their view...

Most of my males get over living next to one another however some males are super territorial and have to be alone.
