Did you just get the fish? I've found that when I buy new fish they do flare all the time but than they basically get used it. They will occasionally flare, but not all the time. You might want to get bigger plants, I have really tall ones on either side of the dividers so they have plenty of room to hide if they get scared or agitated and with tall plants they can't see the other fish as clearly unless they get right up to the divider.

I found the opposite. My new vt never flared. I put him in a smaller container and put him in front of a mirror to get him to flare. Before someone says I'm hurting my fish, I needed him to open all his fins to see if his fin rot was healing!
