Question Opinions...

I was wondering instead of splitting one of my 10 gallons in two, would it be okay to split it in 3? Each betta would have about 6.67 inches of space. I just didn't want to leave Merlin all by himself in a one gallon tank. The only problem with Merlin, is hoping his white stuff doesn't come back if I put him in bigger tank. So I'll probably leave the one gallon set up just in case. Opinions? Do you think it's enough space? It's a little over 3 gallons per betta. Thanks guys.

I think Robarie had hers split 3 ways so it would work.

Really? That's great. It just seemed like I was leaving Merlin out, and he seems so unhappy with a one gallon. Thanks Drama! =D

Yeah, my betta is in 2.5 gallons of water, and he seems to be doing great, so a little over 3 gallons of water would work great

I think the 3 split we saw was a 20 gallon though. You can give it a shot and see how much room there is. Good luck!

Yeah if it doesn't look right, space wise that is, I won't do it. I really want to get a 20 long and put all of my bettas in it.

I think thats a pretty good idea. Instead of leaving a betta out, or having to buy more tanks, :) .

Splitting a 10 gallon 3 ways is what I'm hoping to do for when I move to my college dorm! Just be sure to leave at least an inch or two of space of water from the top of the dividers so they can't jump over.

Yeah, you have to make sure they can't get through or over the dividers.
