Betta fry flaring

My little 8 week old fry are starting to flare at eachother.
I have 3 big ones but there only about a cm, 3 medium 0.8 and 2 runts that are 0.3.
So my 3 big ones don't even have colour and theyre chasing after eachother with minimal nipping. I have some 5 gallon buckets that just need heaters if I need to separate them but I'd rather they stayed together :/
Any suggestions?

Maybe just use a divider to separate them. How big is the tank/bucket they are in?? Most tank dividers work.

From what I have read, the males should start being separated when they start to flare. You can jar them or put them in divided tanks...

Hmmm... Turns out the ones that were flaring are little girlies!
Would it just be one getting dominance over the other? :/
