Question Reading About Sororities...

Hello! As some of you may know, I recently purchased two female Bettas and put them in divided 10g tanks, one male and one female in each. I used Plexiglas to separate them, which worked, but now the males are just freaking out because it's completely see-through. I have gotten many very awesome suggestions on how to help with the Plexiglas, but the ones I have tried haven't worked so far. The only option I have is trying to scratch it out with steel wool, but I don't have any :/ I was wondering if you peoples think that making a sorority would just be better and putting the two males in their own divided tank. I have 2 out 4 females that I have put in a QT for three days, one with a slight case of popeye that is being treated in the divided tank while I treat the male on the other side for his fin rot, which has made a reappearance. I will be getting more plants sometime this week. Or will their aggression and interest die down after a while? I'm just worried about all the flaring, my one male has only flared once in the almost year I've had him and now won't stop... Is this a good idea, or do you awesome experts out there think I will fail miserably?

I don't think the males are less likely to flare at each other than they are at females. Whilst I am all for sororities, because I love them, I think the only thing that will help is seperate tanks or solid dividers. :( Steel wool isn't too expensive, though - if you can't get any of that, sandpaper will work too. :)
