I know some people on here that have males and females in the same divided tank. I tried it once but they weren't getting along so I had to separate them. You could try it and if it doesn't work, you could just put the males together and the female in her own tank or get another female to put in with her; that's what I did.

Doggyhog has a female betta between two males, you should ask her for advice. :)


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

Ohhh yeah!! It works and the boys loveeee it!!! The only problem I have is that the boys keep blowing their fins... LOL they love her so much... I've found it is a good thing for a tail biter to have a female next to him. It really distracts him so he doesn't bite his tail off.

If you split the tank 3-way I'd put the female in the middle so they can both see her. Chances are she'll completely fall in love with one of them

Males:
Dragner - lavender/red cambodian SpT
Cromwell - dragon CT
Girls:
Duff - green CT
