Only one way to find out.....give it a try and see how he does......you can always take him out if he can't tolerate the space/filter....

Ok sometime before the end of the week I will put him in and see what happens and check how the two males flare and what not and keep him in or put him back if it doesn't work. If it does I'm going to keep his old WAY to small tank and heater for a QT. Thanks for your great advice as always OFL and I will post a progress pic about once a month until his tail's back to normal. :)

He's in but the fish allready in there (had undivided until today) thinks it's his territory so he is flaring more than I have ever seen a betta flare before!!! *runs away to make sure they're not hopping over the divider to kill each other....slightly scared!*

A little but they're still flaring a lot so I was wondering if I should take one out? Or is it ok?

They sort of seem to be tiring each other out because they swim not so craxily and flare only every few seconds and don't seem so mad but I can tell they're getting exausted is that ok? Never had a divided tank...

omg - amazing story & pics! It was like reading a suspense novel! (this is my 1st post, been lurking for a couple wks since I got my first betta in over a decade). Awesome progress! Please keep updating us! I can't wait to see his tail fully healed!

UPDATE: They're doing pretty well now, with fighting at a minimum. And even without his full tail he's doing well :).
