    Dear Beta lovers,

    I have a concern which is, Can two male bettas live together with a glass divider in between?

    Do they lose its fighting power when they see each? Please advise

    i wont recommend a see through glass divider, they might stress out due to excessive flaring.

    I'd suggest frosted glass. While some people say it's not bad for male Bettas to see each other and flare, that's a 'fight or flight' response, and is, by definition, stressful to the fish. It's probably not bad to have it happen once in a while, but not every couple of hours.

    I would heavily pland both sides of the divider to limit sight of each other

    It wouldn't be great, they'd probably get stressed seeing each other all the time. You could heavily plant either side of the glass to help, or use a large filter sponge cut to size as the divider

    Thank you everyone for the quick responses!
    Much appreciated and I'm impressed with this website.

    I'll keep a separation for my 7 betta boys!

    More suggestions are welcome from others too!
