I could show you a picture of my 5.5 divided. It's pretty neat. It actually finished tonight so I put the girls in early. I think its pretty nifty

pros:you get multiple bettas in one tank, you get to see them interact as it were and water changes are one tank instead of two. Cons:More frequent water changes, they could jump/go through the divider and fight, and if one gets sick the other most likely will get sick.

over all I do like them. I also have a 10 gal divided 3 way for boys

Thanks for taking the time out to explain to me what you like about them... I woke up today very clear headed and wanting to divide the tank... I know I have to put the new guy in a QT for two weeks... during that time should I divide the tank or let seabiscuit have his full reign of the tank?

not a problem. I sure there are others pros/cons to divided tanks but I don't remember them. I would a 50% water change the day your QT ends. Then while your tank is half empty, rearrange your decorations, install your divider etc etc. Then introduce them both back into the tank at the same time. That way no one has "established" territory of any means and it should be alright. It'll also take a couple months for them to get used to their neighbor so expect lots of flaring and frantic swimming along the divider

Ok thanks... im taking some decor out of the tank today to put in with the new betta .... sea biscuit has already claimed certain decor as his fav so of course he gets to keep those to himself.

I'm glad you decided I just got my divided tank up and running this past weekend. It is only half occupied - occupant #2 was just purchased Sunday and is in a kritter keeper till he recovers from Life:Cupped. But I'm excited about it, so I'll show it to you anyway, even though you made up your mind!

This is the Petco Bookshelf - which I think is a 6.6, so a tad larger, but comparable to yours.
