5g seems a bit small for dividing and having two.

That's 2.5 gallons per betta. I keep a male veiltail and a male crowntail (plus one golden mystery snail) in a divided 5 gallon setup. It is planted, cycled, filtered, and heated. I perform roughly one or two 75 percent water changes a week. My water parameters are perfect and my boys are thriving.

Four of my males are in a five gallon divided two ways... And they are fine.

I agree with lbf, you need to upgrade ASAP... A quart is way to small.

It's all personal preference. I, and many others, have no problems with dividing a 5. That's 2.5 gallons per fish plus they can interact with each other. With live plants and a filter there's no issues with water quality.
