Can a male Betta live with another?

I have two male bettas in separate tanks and would at one point purchase 1 big tank. I was wondering if it is possible for the two to live together with out a barrier. They have both seen each other through the tanks and didn't even flare. So i don't know if i should be able to put them together or leave them in their separate tanks.

Soo if you have two bettas together can you give me any advise?

The domestic betta (betta splendens) were bred to have more fins and to be very aggressive; more aggressive than their wild counterparts. I would never ever do this, unless the fish itself were bred to be more friendly. Only once in a blue moon it will work.

How big is the tank going to be? Flaring doesn't always mean aggression, it's a form of communication. Learn more here.

Not that Ive heard, maybe if you had an enourmous tank. Answer will pretty much be no every time.

You might wanna talk to OFL, she has a lot of male bettas that live together. Granted she's bred generations of them so she's probably tamed them.
