Dividing a tank and then adding all new members is perfectly fine especially if you add in calm, not as aggressive males with proper dividers. The problem arises when the fish has had the whole tank and then it is divided. Why? The fish doesn't understand. They work on instinct rather thinking. They've known most of their lies they can continue on and now they cannot and therefore that is when it becomes traumatic and highly stressful.
