Is this normal?

So recently I got my new betta Toothless, and gave him about 4 gallons of my 10 gallon tank. The first inhabitant, my other betta Roscoe, got downsized to 6 gallons (he previously had the whole thing all to himself)
Now the divider I put in is pretty easy to see through, in fact it's clear. I was expecting an aggressive stand-off between the two boys, yet so far, they act like they have no idea the other one is there when I know they have noticed each other. What gets me even more is that Roscoe has built one of the biggest bubble nests I have seen in awhile, a day after adding Toothless. Roscoe normally builds bubble nests within a day after a water change, yet I hadn't changed the water in about 4/5 days.

My fish are odd.

Here's Toothless:


And Roscoe:


Has anyone ever experienced such easy-going attitudes in these guys? :P

Oh and excuse the cloudiness, this was JUST after adding the divider (what a struggle!) and the ramshorns create such a mess

Maybe Toothless and Roscoe are in love?? LOL.

I have boys that have tanks right next to each other and they don't flare at all. Guess it depends on the betta.

Lol Romad! Some are more aggressive than others, so they're probably just both mellow.

Haha yeah Romad that's what I thought about the love thing :P

But it's odd; Roscoe is absolutely horrid towards his Oto tankmates. I figured he'd act the same to Toothless.
