Is this normal?

So recently I got my new betta Toothless, and gave him about 4 gallons of my 10 gallon tank. The first inhabitant, my other betta Roscoe, got downsized to 6 gallons (he previously had the whole thing all to himself)
Now the divider I put in is pretty easy to see through, in fact it's clear. I was expecting an aggressive stand-off between the two boys, yet so far, they act like they have no idea the other one is there when I know they have noticed each other. What gets me even more is that Roscoe has built one of the biggest bubble nests I have seen in awhile, a day after adding Toothless. Roscoe normally builds bubble nests within a day after a water change, yet I hadn't changed the water in about 4/5 days.

My fish are odd.

Here's Toothless:


And Roscoe:


Has anyone ever experienced such easy-going attitudes in these guys? :P

Oh and excuse the cloudiness, this was JUST after adding the divider (what a struggle!) and the ramshorns create such a mess

Maybe Toothless and Roscoe are in love?? LOL.

I have boys that have tanks right next to each other and they don't flare at all. Guess it depends on the betta.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Lol Romad! Some are more aggressive than others, so they're probably just both mellow.

Haha yeah Romad that's what I thought about the love thing :P

But it's odd; Roscoe is absolutely horrid towards his Oto tankmates. I figured he'd act the same to Toothless.
