Good day everyone :)
Im new to the betta's but not that new to fishkeeping - I have goldies that I love but have always wanted Betta's.
At first I started out with a small tank about 10liters (sorry im south african and gallons are greek to me). Then my brother decided to suprise me and made a divider for the tank using plastic netting, plastic binders (those you use for projects). Once he divided the small tank he came home with my second betta.
They seemed to do very well in the small tank, leaving each other alone mostly. (Moon, my new kid - he just loved flaring for my goldfish and ignored his tankmate Ozzy!)
Then my brother (he keeps other tropical fish) decided to upgrade to a 60L tank and donated his Jebo338 to me - so my goldfish moved to the bigger tank and I made a divider again with the plantmesh, this time I wound some cotton thread on it and stuck Java Moss on it in various places (Im hoping to get the moss to cover the whole section (almost A4 in size) so that it creates a natural looking barrier between the two kids. At the moment they can still see each other and Ozzy is flaring like a madman every now and then. Moon tends to ignore him tho.
The tank that they moved into is a Jebo 310 (about 30l without decorations and gravel).
I was just wondering what else I could add to the tank to make it less stressfull for them. Because I noticed Moons fins are a bit ragged and I am guessing its from the stress of the move. Altho he is still eating and playing with his Java moss (I have 2 small bits in both tanks that used to be in their teracota pots but they like moving it all over the tank.)

Any tips or advise would be welcome :)
