Divided Tank Question

I like to switch up my bettas arrangements from time to time and I've been wondering if this was okay...

Is it okay to put a female betta in a divided tank with males? I have a 14G divided 3 ways with mesh. The section on the end is where I would put her. 2 of my boys would be in the other sections. However, I'll keep her in her 2.5G tank if the divided tank is an unsafe or stressful place for her.

I would say it's fine if they can't see eachother and they can't jump over the divider.

Well there's no way they can jump over but they can definitely see each other through the mesh. I don't think I'm going to put her there, I'm so worried she'll stress out.

My friend has his Cambodian crowntail female in the same divided tank as his CT male, and they get along great. They're actually buddies and flirt through the divider. If there's only one male and she's on the end, she might be okay.

It's fine. But I have opaque dividers (two sheets of craft mesh sewn together with half of a plastic folder slipped inside). I would suggest making it as opaque as possible.

Ok, I'll put her in there and try it out. If she seems stressed, I'll use the opaque divider idea. Thanks so much!

my dividers are clear glass and my 5 boys are very happy. they flare at each other for a while, then get bored and swim off.

I've seen videos of females in divided tanks with males before. Seems fine to me.
