most bettas cant flare at each other because if they are in cups no matter what size the round shape of the cups messes with their view so they cant see each other also look for a betta who blew a bubble nest in their tank

Not true. I've seen PLENTY of Betta at Walmart flaring at the other fish.

I should have paid closer attention when choosing my betta. His fins looked a little torn and strange and 2 weeks later I'm dealing with one sick fish. But...I am kinda glad that I got him out of that pet store anyway. I'm trying my best though. :) Keeping high hopes!

Its 100% true... its called Snell's Law or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angle_of_refraction ... or simply get a glass of water and look thru it, only the image near the axis of the glass is clear, everything away from the axis becomes more and more distorted.

Now that is not to say that if both fishes are near the wall of the cup/jar, that they then aren't able see each other, but when fishes are past the half way point of the jar, it is unlikely that they will see each other
