How many bettas in a 10 gallon?

How many bettas should I put in a 10 gal divided?

I found a 10 gallon tank + 50w heater for only $10 at a garage sale a block from my house! begging my brother to let me borrow 10 bucks and help me make some dividers.

I was thinking maybe 4 slots? Should I do 3 to make more room??

It will be cycled and planted too!

3 or 4 would work, I've seen many people do it successfully!

Four is good, especially if its cycled and planted.

I prefer only 3 but at that point it's personal choice ^_^ To me, 4 looks too crowded but it certainly gives them enough room still! So that's up to you at that point however I really wouldn't do 5 XD that would be really hard to clean out lol

I have three in mine. I've seen tanks with four, but like some others, I find that a bit cramped. I'm actually working on dividing two 20g long tanks for six fish each!

I'd suggest doing just 3, that gives each fish 3.33g which is a nice amount!

I'd say set the dividers in the tank and see how many will fit before it starts looking awkward. Length is more important than gallon for most fish, so if it's a 10 gallon long you could fit quite a bit more than an average 10 gal, the same is true for a 10gal tall but with less. I have my three bettas in a long 5.5 gal now, and they're perfectly happy, but if I tried to put the same number in my old 10 gal tall, there just wouldn't be enough room @.@ There should be space for at least 2 large bettas fin-to-fin length wise at the shortest point. Then you are good :)
