Post Is it okay to split a 10gallon tank with 2 male bettas?

I asked on yahooanswers if i could put 2 bettas in a 10gallon tank and divide it but people said it would stress them out and die. Is it true? Because i have 2 goldfish in it but for my birthday i am getting a larger tank and i wanted to put my bettas in the 10gal tank. Is that okay?

Yep. Totally OK. If you want answers, come here. :) LOL Yahoo answers people sometimes don't know what they are talking about.

The males will get used to each other after a while.

I did have one that didn't do well with another male, but for the most part they should be fine as long as the divider is somewhat opaque. I'd try putting them next to eachother in their current tanks first, and if they seem to not be stressed about it, then go for it.

LMAO! Since when has Yahoo Answers ever been reliable to fish queries?

Bettabubble3, I'll be more than happy to see pics of your goldies.

IF it doesn't work, divide it into three, and get a girl betta for the middle!!!!!! :D That is what I did when one of mine got stressed out.
