Actually, the $$ difference between a 5g or 10g isn't that much. A few $$ extra for a larger heater/decor.

sounds like a plan. Maybe when I move out (I'm only 15) and move into a college dorm room I'll get one. Pending on if it is allowed or not.

It would make sense to put the larger fish into a larger aquarium.

If you get a divider, you can give the smaller fish two gallons, and the larger one three gallons. You will just have to align the divide either to the left or the right, not in the center. But over time, there will be space issues when the betta is fully grown to two inches or so, and its the same trouble again.

Personally, I would just buy another five gallon. That way, you could include some tank mates as well. I'm not one to put a betta in a tank alone. I always include a few shrimp or frogs.

EDIT: On the age discussion, I'm 13 turning 14 on July 23rd. Just my $0.02. :P

I had the same dilemma today at petsmart today.

I have a Betta sorority, and silly me, and silly store labeled the betta fish a female. Long story short... it was male after all. I honestly couldn't tell. It happens. I figured this out about two weeks ago... after having him for a couple of days in the tank. He's been couped up in a half a gallon ever since.

So today I picked up a 5 gallon aquarium for this guy. :) After the debate between 2.5 and a 5. I decided upon a 5 gallon, as the water changes would be a little easier, and the honestly bettas love to swim! And, you can also add a divider to have two bettas, and both would have enough space to swim around.

Yup. I've heard so many weird stories like that. I've seen a mis-sexed betta in Walmart...*eye roll*
