Second Attempt at Splitting a Ten Gallon

Hey everyone, I got busy with work and my first attempt at trying out a ten gallon didn't work out so well :( I decided to take a break from trying for a bit.

Now that I have some more free time, I would love to try again so I can get my two boys into a larger tank (with a separator of course). The tank I have used to have a turtle living in it and I would like not to transfer any possible diseases or harmful bacteria when I transfer over my fish.

Any suggestions on cleaning or cycling before I work on setting up the tank and transferring my fish?

(I have a 75 watt heater and a filter as well)

I always recommend fishless cycling with pure ammonia. Simple, effective, cheap, and stress-free :)
As for cleaning, I'd use a 1:10 bleach dilution for everything. That should take care of any nasties and give you a nice clean start for your fish :)

I agree with the above.

When I divide a 10 gallon, I also like the make 3 different sections. The middle section is super small and only big enough to fit the filter and heater. The outer sections hold the bettas. This way there is a little bit of a buffer between the fish so if one gets past the divider the fish are still separated and the buffer also helps block the view of the other fish.
