10 gallon for college??

hey guys! since i've been in college, i've been using a 5 and 4 gallon for my bettas. my question is, would it be more efficient/simpler to upgrade to a 10 gallon and just divide the for the two of them or should i just stick to the two tanks that i already have? thanks!

Personal opinion would be to keep 2 separate tanks. I'm no pro by any means, but consider one of them gets sick, and you only have 1 tank, would make a bit of an issue. Of course, you could sell those 2 tanks, pickup a 1g for quarantine, and then divide a 10g.

Hmm, a conundrum.

Personally, I would put them in the 10 gal divided. It's half the water changes and is much more forgiving if you skip a water change. The temp will also be more stable as it's a large amount of water. And it will only be one tank to move between your hometown and college.

You should always have a separate tank in case something comes up, tho. A 1 gal bowl works just fine for this. And those are just a few bucks at a pet store.
