20 gallons

So I have 4 betta fish.(3 males 1 female.)I was thinking about getting this aquarium "Top Fin 20 Gallon Aquarium Starter Kit" from petsmart includes the fallowing "Aquarium, Top Fin Power Filter 20 With Cartridge, hood with LED lights, Canopy, Adjustable 100 Watt Heater, Strip Thermometer, Fish Net, Fish Food Sample, Water Conditioner Sample, Bacteria Starter Sample, Setup Guide with Free Phone Support ." Of corse I wont use the net,foodsample,and condition sample.So what im saying will this be ok for 4 betta fish if I make or bye some dividers?Plus some more décor and sand:)

Is it a 20 long?

A 20 gallon (18.7 gallons) long should be fine be fine for 4 betters as far a gallons & space are concerned. I'm not crazy about Top Fin products, especially their filters. One better is going to get stuck with a filter in his territory and the other with a 100 Watt heater. 3 in the tank would probably work betta with a separate area just for a filter and heater. I think you would do betta by purchasing betta quality items separately and probably wouldn't spend all that much more money.

Search the forum for other divided tanks and see what other members came up with. No sense in re-inventing the wheel.

The only tetra brand thing i use is the whisper air pump (and begrudgingly their tanks on the $ per a gallon sale (and then re-silicone it since their seal work looks like it was done by a monkey) very cheap.
I'm a fan of sponge filters for bettas now, it won't suck up the pop from all the divided sections but keeps the water cycled and doesn't make a horrible current for who ever has the filter in their section.

I never get too excited over the chains $ per gallon sales for this reason.

I'm lucky, at least one of my LFSs offers Marineland & Aqueon tanks in their dollar per gallon sales.

Love those Tetra Whisper pumps!

The person I buy my live food from sells sponge filters if you can order online. A small one in each compartment would work well.
