Question What to do with 17 gallon?

Well all that is in it are: (not counting guppy fry in a breeders net) 1 male guppy (i raised him since birth tee hee), 1 panda cory (i will get more when possible as i know they are shoaling fish, and my little crowntail boy aido. My 20 gallon is divided in three (i CAN divide it into four though i have an extra divider) for one female and two males. And my 1 gallon has Dizzy in it, he is so cute.

Should i divide the 20 gallon into four with the males in it and have a sorority in the 20 gallon? ( if so i will most likely sell my guppy and cory as to avoid feeding complications.) And stop using my 1 gallon? ( I don't like my 1 gallon much anymore as it requires so many water changes)

Or idea two: Make the 17 gallon a community tank including one male betta (im not going to have another community/ sorority) and dividing the 20 gallon in four for males stopping the 1 gallons use.

Or idea three: Other. ( suggestions?)

Other. This is my idea. Divide it into four, put 2 or 3 resident males in, and then rescue 1 or 2 from a pet store. Just a thought. If not, then Idea 2.
