Splitting fins

I have 36 gal tank that I have a lovely betta sorority in. They all get along fine but it seems like often when I get a new girl if she has long fins, she will split them herself flaring. Is there a way to stop this or is it because of the fins atrophing in the little containers?

If your female has that long of fins, are you sure its a female? Flaring all the time is more of a male quality than a female one.

It'd make sense if it were male, the flaring would slit the fins, yes.

Yep , she is a female. Just put in the big tank today and split her tail fin, flaring at everyone. SHe has settled down now but her tail looks horrible.

Fairly common problem when introducing females into sororities, never have found a really good solution.
