10 Gal Community, or Divided?

I have a 10 gal tank that I am ready to put fish into, and I can't decide if I want to have a 10 gal community tank with one betta, or divide in half and put two bettas in there. If I were to divide it half, would I be able to put any other fish besides the bettas on each side? Help!?

You probably wouldn't want to have any other fish if it's divided, other than shrimp or snails because that's basically limiting them to 5 gallons of space. I've had a community in a 10 gallon (which is now in a bigger tank), then swtiched to a divided 10 gallon and now I have a lone (SPOILED) betta in the 10 gallon. I prefered the divided or just 1 betta, but ultimately it's up to you!

That's what I figured. I think I'm just going to stick with my community tank idea then!

Awesome. I suggest cories. They're so playful and fun to watch. Plus they're cute!

So I went to petco today and got 3 balloon mollys, 3 platys, and 3 oto catfish, and I decided to take a peek at the bettas and came home with another guy I still want to get some sort of decoration for the bottom, maybe a piece of driftwood, and then I've got some marimo moss balls coming on eBay!
I'll put some more pictures of him in the pic section.
