Your babies are adorable! And your divider looks good too. Did you make it or buy it? Most of them are ugly, but that one is nice!

Hi my HM male just doesnt like a big space and is much happier in his own small tank. He just hides or flares constantly in my divided tank My vailtail loves as much space as he can get and is very teritorial.My old crowntail prefered a small tank also.

I had a halfmoon in a 20G tall, and he was fine. He loved all the space to swim. He used to swim in loops from the top of the tank to the bottom...it was hilarious!

I had the filter baffled so that the current was too strong for him (their fins act like sails), and I put a pre-filter sponge over top of the filter intake so his delicate fins wouldn't get sucked in and damaged.

I had him in a 3G KK to QT when I first got him, and he loved it. When I moved him into the 20G, I swear he didn't stop swimming around for 2 days straight! I even had a hard time getting his attention to feed him because he was having so much fun! LOL

I guess I'm in a quandry. I want a few more bettas, but have limited space, so can't have several big tanks in every room. Yet I want to be able to buy/rescue any betta that I can give a better life. I could have 3 or so that live like kings, or 6-8 that live more "modestly". I don't know which is best. Just fell in love with the Mr. Aqua 12 gallon long tank at marine depot. would love to divide it, and make a home for three bettas! I also worry about having fish shipped. I'm trying to find the ones closest to north carolina, where i live.

Made it, and thanks

Whichever way you go on the tanks, you seem like you'll be a very conscientious keeper, so any bettas you get should consider themselves quite lucky!

This is the tutorial I used. I did not use a measuring tape (because I'm badass like that.. More like lazy) and I fitted the dividers on all 4 sides and stuck it up under the rim of the tank and buried the other side and the 2 "walls" are fit nice and tight against the glass. It was easy as heck to make and cheap too!
report covers were at the dollar store in a pack of 4 for 1.50$, the mesh was at Michael's for 1.50$ and that was all I needed!

Oh Thank you! What a kind thing to say. I have been offered 2 bettas from an Ebay seller, but neither fish is exactly what I want. Though they are SO CUTE!!! One is older, and one is just 4 months. I cannot help but wonder how many I can "collect" and still care for them all properly! I don't mind doing water changes, etc. so maintenance is NOT a "chore" for me. I enjoy caring for all my critters...

I wish someone "offered" me bettas!! I'm kind of hoping my friend will ask if I want hers because she doesn't know how to care for it.... You could always take them and try to find good homes for them? It might be hard but in either case you would have 2 free bettas! Divide a tank for them even.

This is the 4 month old male. What kind is he? Any chance he will grow up to be a halfmoon? Owner says he is a "mixed breed", but has halfmoon genes. She is throwing in an older lavender betta with the blue one. What do you all think? I only have 30 minutes to decide
