55 gallon tank

My mom and dad gave me their 55 gallon tank. I was thinking of dividing it for my male bettas. What would be the best size to divide it down to?

A 55 gal is a bit tall to divide for bettas. I wouldn't keep the long-finned males in it; that will probably result in fin-biting. With plakats it might be possible. You could turn it into a huge sorority. I've seen people do that with good results. But I think the long-finned males might find it too tall. Another idea is to make it a community tank with a single betta in it.

Sororities are a lot of fun tbh! Although they also do take some work.

I've only kept two in my 10 gallon, but I'd love to have a big tank ot fill with girls one day.
