agreed. since this is a 10 gallon, dividing should provide a more than comfortable but separate home for both bettas and prevent anything bad from happening.

Because she was on the brink of death in Walmart and I fell in love with her.

I would separate her, and but her back into her bowl. As long as the bowl is over a gallon, and you do the appropriate water changes, she'll be better off than with a male who may eventually beat her up.

Also, heaters for a tank that small are kinda unreliable, but all that's really out there. I would check out your local stores to see if you could pick one up for cheap. Because shes gonna be cold too, they aren't too expensive, usually around $10-$15. (:

I seperated them because the female tore up Mojo's fins. Marcy was fine, she beat up Mojo.

Good to hear they are now separated. It's not really a surprise the female ended up attacking the male. Females are often every bit as aggressive as their male counterparts and aren't hampered by long fins.

Unfortunately, it is rare for two splendens to cohabitate long-term without issue. However, these things are better discovered sooner rather than later.

Is the yellow fish in the picture, Mojo? He looks like a guppy to me. Which a guppy and a female betta together are fine in a tank together. They won't breed together at all.

America (f, HM), Spirit (m, DBLT), Rescue (f, VT), Missile (m, HM), Purnurple (m, HMPK), Dragon (m, VT), platies, mollies, sorority tank of 21 females, AND lots of guppies.

If you look in the OP's album, Mojo is a VT male betta. Hence why a lot of people were concerned about them being put together.

I have 3 guppies in the tank, two females, one male, one betta and two kuhli loaches who remind me of kitty cats. :3 they're so adorable.

Marcy is getting some really nice color, some hints of blue and red but her stress stripes still remain.
