Can Males can get pale and stripes at the sight of a flaring male?

I just got a crowntail male and I guess you'd say he's rooster colored underneath his rainbow of colors he has stripes you can't typically see. I set him down in front of one of my other male who flared at him. He became paler and dark vertical stripes showed. After I moved him back to his normal spot he returned to his normal colorful self and the stripes disappeared.

Is flaring really stressful and unhealthy?

Some people seem to think this is good exercise others think it stresses the fish out. You can share your experiences but does anyone know of any scholarly factual articles on this?

Anything can stress a betta out. I used to have a female who became stressed with being in a sorority setting
