Any advise on keeping Female and Male Bettas in the same tank?

My husband bought me a new, small tank with glass dividers, and i was thinking of putting Panic, my male CT, and Sassy, my female CT, both in the tank but want to make sure it is ok.
Is it ok to hold them in the same water?
And is it ok to let them see each other if i am not planning to breed them right now? Will i just cause them unnecessary stress?
Is there a safe way to wrap or paint the glass divider so they cannot see each other or do they need to not be able to smell each other, etc.? (i dont know if bettas can smell, but assume they can)

Its a small tank so I suggest getting another tank actually. Its not a good idea generally to put male and female in same tank unless you have a rock solid divider and even then its better to have individual tanks for sure.

Pan is alone in the tank now. I Will probably to get another heater and set up Pan's old 2 gal bowl for Sassy.

That will work. The fish will likely be less stressed and therefore so will you. Good luck.
