I really enjoy have my 10 gal divided, but I do not want this to happen again. Any suggestions? I can try to add on to the i guess if I cut up the corners on an extension so the lid will fit along the sides.

How close is the water level to the top of the divider? Could you maybe post a picture of the set up? I know at work I had a problem with a cichlid jumping the divider in the sick tank so I lowered the water and he couldnt jump over it anymore.

The water is now 2 inches below the very top of the tank. At the time of the accident I'd say it was abou .5 inches from the top.

I would maybe make sure the water is at least an inch below the top of the divider. That's what I keep it at at work and haven't had any jumpers since. But make sure to get a second opinion because I'm not sure of the jumping ability of a determined betta.

I've had this problem the last 2 days. I put my Troublemaker back in the tank, she had some bloat problems, and I had to much water in the tank. Well, I saw Atlas in that side. Luckily they were are separate ends of the tank. I quickly took him out and back to his side! I took out a loott of water and where the food lid is I put the petco lid of top over his section of the tank so he can't jump over. And, this also sounds really bad, but there is a post it note in there as well to block the top (and no it isn't touching the water). I think, since they didn't have any problems when we initially put them in the tank, he was jealous that the empty side is now occupied again!

So, the cheap and quick way to temperamentally solve it is to put a lid, or whatever that would give airway to the tank, but also prevent jumping. :D

(Also, my Troublemaker apparently was the one trying to fight because later when I looked at the tank his pretty top fin looked like there were bites in it! Well, thankfully there wasn't a bubble nest!!)
