15 gallons, two dividers

I might be getting a 15 gallon tank, since I currently can get a good price on it.

Would i be able to put in two dividers (making three 5 gallons). Would this be alright, would it stress out the middle fish since it would be surrounded by two bettas.

Yes, you can divide a 15 gallon 3 ways. Make sure the dividers are secure. You can put plants and decorations against the divider so the fish can't see each other.

Thanks for posting this. I have a 20 gallon that I am going to divide into two 10 gallon sections. I was going to put my blue male betta (Jimmie) in one side and buy a red betta for the other. I was worried about them seeing each other. The plants idea is a great idea. Thanks!

It'll be fine, the"posts" on the front of the divider are kinda thick so it might not look too good. As for plants I heard you can make some kind of divider hider out of java moss.

Flaring is good for the fish, so I just leave my fish next to eachother.

After they get used to each other they don't flare anymore. At least that has been my experience.

So allowing them to see each other would be ok?
