In a 10 gallon tank, the only thing you can keep together is a group of at least 4 females. but even then, you need to plant the tank and give them a lot of hiding spots.

You cannot mix males with females, or males with males. If you want to keep more than one betta that isn't a group of females, you can divide the tank as suggested.


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

I think you get the clear and emphasized point in all these posts:
Divide it, or forget it!

I keep two males in a ten gallon divided tank, they do just fine. At this point they've grown a little bored of each other, actually, they don't flare at each other as often. Nettle is out of the 10g for a while for fin rot, though, so I'm thinking when I move him back in they'll be flaring again.

But yeah, 10 gallon must be divided.. in a much larger tank it would be possible for an experienced fish keeper, but ten gallons is just too small.
