Question Your experiences with this...

I was planning on putting 2 males in a divided 10 gallon. I've never had 2 males in the same tank before. I was wondering if anyone else has done this and how well did it work?

I was thinking about moving one of my females that is in a divided 10 gallon with another female to the 10 gallon with a male so each male will have a female next to them.

I don't know if moving the female would be stressful or not.

Advice/suggestions/opinions are greatly appreciated!

Well I started out having 2 males side by side. They constantly flared at eachother. I switched out a male for a female, the male still flared and tried to get the females attention. I felt better about it with the female next to the male since he wouldn't be "competing" with the other male. Just my opinion. :)

I have a 10 gallon with 2 males, soon to be three! They do flare, but not constantly. They have been in there for a week, and are totally used to each other. They have plants right against the divider, and hidey caves. :) I really love divided tanks!

Sounds like it's a toss up so far lol. Yeah, I love watching how the male and female interact with each other side by side.

I have my 10 gallon with 3 males in it, well not right now. But when they were next to eachother, they were fine. Good luck!

I'm thinking about splitting a tank as well. I want to put two dividers in my ten gallon and have a male on each side with a female in the middle. How does that sound to everyone?? o.O

I have my 10 gallon cycling right now for my 3 boys, and I've been thinking about putting one of the boys in Lily's vase, and putting her in the middle.

I'm thinking about leaving Amaro in his vase and just getting three new Bettas.
