Hey everyone. I have a 10 gallon with my betta Haru, right now hes got it all to himself but i reallllly want another betta and was thinking about dividing the tank in half so 5 gallons per betta. Do you think this would be ok? like would it still be enough room for both of them?? maybe at first I could divide it into 6 gallons for haru and 4 for the new one until Haru adjusts to the smaller space? I dont know, I really want another betta but dont have room in the condo for another tank. What do you think?
Dividing the tank in half is fine for two betta, even splitting it 3 ways is still okay. Don't worry about the 6/4 either, just split it down the middle and it'll be good. Make sure the divider is in tight though, don't want one getting on the other side. There may be flaring between the two bettas initially but they'll get over eachother and eventually not care anymore.
Yup.. I do. I already put a picture on your picture thread.
I love my divided tank. I have the pre-made divider but I took the original plastic out and put craftstore mesh in instead because it makes it harder to see through. IME clear dividers can stress the fish and cause tail biting. Changing the plastic out lets the fish feel secure but still see each other somewhat.
