just how well does swithching places in a divided tank go? i dont know if it will cause unesscessary stress if i switch sides every few weeks or so. ive only do so twice but thats only for stress relief (didnt go so well) as i dont think my DeT likes being in a wc cup.

I don't switch mine. Each has his half of the tank with nice plants and his own hidey spot. Not that I ever catch either of them in their hideys for very long

I would imagine, and it seems like you experienced, that switching causes undue stress.

This is how I divide my tanks..this way there is less chance of them seeing each other and stressing..and the heater/filter is evenly distributed.

In my opinion I dont like my very agressive Betta being forced to see other fish. But there are many Betta that show great potental for a divided or tankmate.

I switch my bettas every now and then. I mean, after a good long clean where they're away in cups anyway. It gives them something totally different, like, since my tank is on my desk one fish is always closer to me and can see what's happening on my computer so they like to watch the screen move and stuff. So I switch them for stimulation.

If I was a Betta I would hate to have my tank changed.

Well mine spend time exploring new territory. I would hate to be in the same un-changed box every day.

It depends on each individual.

Carter loves moving around his tank. I think at sometime they will figure out they have been there before.

We have dividers in all 5 tanks of ours, and they all seem to be okay. The filter system doesn't appear to be bad so far. We don't tend to switch them sides ever, just because we like them to be used to their side of the tank. It's enjoyable to have two of them in the same tank, all of mine like to play this cat and mouse game with each other. Sometimes I get woken up in the middle of the night from a few of them swimming into the divider trying to nip the other one. And what's even cuter, is that they all will swim up to the divider when it's time for food, flapping their little fins knowing it's dinner time, and flare at each other until I give them their food.
