very concerned about new double tank

I'm sure this question has been posted before but I haven't been able to find a thread that answers my question. I have two male bettas. They lived separately until last night when I bought one of those tanks with a dividing panel from Petco. My older male betta has been acting very aggressive and looks like he is trying to charge the other side of the tank. Will it take time for him to get use to or should I switch back to separate bowls? I don't want my fish to stress themselves out.

Thank you!

You can put plants along the division to block out the view of the boys from each other. So long as the tank is large enough to do that.

They will get use to each other!

My boys were the same way! It lasted for a week or less and eventually they got use to each other and stopped flaring. :) Just try putting plants and stuff around the divider. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

your boys will get used to each other they will learn that that is the other males territory as long as your males are healthy and well cared for dont worry about them stressing

That's much too small for two bettas. :(

The more aggressive one should settle down in a bit. I have no idea how much decor is in the tank, but I do recommend making sure there is plenty for both sides to explore; and a nice dark cave so each can get away from each other. :)

*edited to add* the one you have is 1g and divided? so it's .5 per fish? I would agree that is way too small.
