Question 10gal tank question?

I have two 10gals that are divided once. None of my bettas seem to be using the full 5gals so I was thinking about dividing one 10gal 3 times, saving a little money and dividing the other 10gal the same way (3x) later on, but I just spontaneously got a new boy so would dividing a 10gal 4 times be too much? I know if I divided it 4x, there would be about 2.5gals for each one but that's without decor... So should I divide it 3 times or 4 times???

Four Betta in a 10g is not technically overstocked.

BUT.

Four Betta in four 2.5g tanks gives them more swimming room than four in a 10g. They need floorspace to get around and not feel cramped. Two in a 10g is not as good as two 5gals, etc.

There are advantages to dividing tanks.... but mostly for the keeper.

Yeah, I thought about it some more and asked around, and I decided to just go the 3way divide to be safe. I'll just order a different tank or something for the new boy I just got for now.
