If you really want to keep both fish, then you can divide the tank. I doubt they sell dividers for that small of a tank (they have all kinds at all pet stores).
I would suggest making it, here is the DIY for a divider. It's cheap and easy to make. http://www.fishforum.com/diy-aquariu...ividers-21866/

Also, I would suggest getting a heater if you can't keep the water at a steady 78-80 degrees F.

i was looking at the dividers and the smallest they are for is 10 gal tanks so i guess i get to make one. I found the tutorial here though so thats good. I assume i need to get a cave for each side now. the cave i have now is two big if i am dividing the tank. wonder if they will let me return it if i put it in a tank (no fish were in there so i would hope so)

we usually have the ac set to 78-80 so that wont be a prob luckily lol. I will probably get one before winter though since we dont heat our house that hot in the winter.

ok so i talked it over with the hubby and we're returning one of the females and in a few weeks we will consider adding some ghost shrimp or maybe a pair of cories. although arent they supposed to be in trios? eh, i'll do some research.

Otos would be good tank mates with the female. You can have 3 in there with her. I would suggest keeping an eye on her when you put them in, she might not like them.

My hubby was not happy when i told him how much i had spent on everything. He refused to let me spend more money on the supplies to make a divider and to get two rock caves for the two separate sides.

I couldn't convince him since it was a battle to get fish in the first place (over a year of me wanting fish for our two little kids)
