Wow guys, thanks for all of the nice comments on my drawing!

I think I'll have four thermometers instead of two, one in each section.


@eemmais: I actually don't have any spare sponge filters, but I have like 5 spare HOBs. Well, 3 are made for 10 gallon tanks, one is made for a 20, and one is for like a 40 or something. I really would only feel comfortable using the 2 that look like this:





But not really the one like this:




As the second type, for one would be more difficult to baffle, and two, it doesn't have a lid to help cover it in case my fishies decide to jump in.


Still, that's two filters made for 10 gal. tanks, would that be enough if I put one at each end along with a heater?

Yeah, that should be fine! I actually have both of those types of filters you showed me. I like the first one way better. Good luck with your tank! I am actually in the process of a fish less cycle on a 20 gallon long right now. I'm sure those bettas will be super happy! Just remember to quarantine them before adding them to their sections.

Of course. :)

Two of them are already in their own divided 10 gallon, so I'm not sure if I should worry about quarantining them...? They'll be going in along with the other two, one of which is recovering from some minor fin rot. I think after I move them I'll use their old tank for more Bettas...

Your heater should be near water movement! If you do a HOB filter, put it near that for the most water movement. If not, put it next to a sponge.
