Question Very new to this

Just bought my son three betas. He loves them so much! I have one small divided aquarium and a single aquarium. They are small, but I will be the one keeping them clean until he gets older (he is four, so they are really my fish, I suppose! LOL).
Anyway... I am a dummy when it comes to betas and I have a very simple question: will the two males I have in the divded set-up calm down a bit or will they be this aggressive always? I mean, they are gorgeous the way they fan out and posture, but I am afraid that the clear divider the aquarium came with should be tinted or something so that they can see each other but, I dunno... LESS so. I guess I am concerned that they will be overly stressed and not eat because they are always acting nutty at the divider.
Like I said, I am a dummy and I am new to this whole thing. I used to keep salt water fish for many years, and thought betas would be an easy fish for my son and he really loves their "colorful fanciness". I just don't want to screw up and stress his pets to death!

What size are the tanks?

IMO fish shouldn't be able to see through a divider.. if they can see it should be very hard.. aka I don't like clear dividers.

If your tank is too small the fish will be very stressed which can eventually kill them if they feel insecure about their homes.
