Too much stress?

So, save for Cow, I have my three other boys and my girl all facing each other in one way or another on a snack table in my room. A good deal of flaring has ensued, and I'm wondering if this is too much interaction for them, and if I should put up some construction paper barriers, or if this will keep them from being bored.

Thoughts?

do you have them all in the same tank with transparent dividers?
or are they in their own tanks. well the construction paper (or just other background) idea may be a good idea to they dont give themselves a heart attack.

Generally when they're kept next to each other like that, they will get used to each other and stop flaring. In fact, when they are young they are used to being together and even when they become aggressive it is stressful to simply take them out of sight of all other bettas.

However, if the flaring continues, I would definitely worry about stress. You could get some nice backgrounds for the tanks, or just use cardboard/paper.

I had two that could see each other and I had to move them away from each other as one was becomming very agressive and the other seemed to be stressing out ..hiding in a corner all the time...after I moved them apart they both became calmer and the stressed guy ( King) started blowing bubble nests..I guess they are all different...thats what I am finding out the longer I keep these guys
