my tanks

For my male i have a big vase for his tank like you see in the doctor's office and for the girls a tank with a divider. Does that sound o.k. for them?

Can you post a photo of the vase and the tank? How large is the vase and the tank, and is there a heater in them?

Way, way too small. 3.5 liters is not even 1 gallon of water. And then it's divided, so they are getting less than a 1/2 gallon of water each. I recommend upgrading them, so that the girls can have at least a minimum of 2.5 gallons of water each. Some people divide a 5 gallon tank if you want them to have 2.5 gallons each, or divide a 10 gallon tank if you want them to have 5 gallons each. But dividing a container less than 1 gallon for two fish is much too small, and would require a water change every single day in order to keep their water healthy.

I highly recommend this tank from Walmart...

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tetra-Aqua...-Pets/12177653

It's under $30, and is a glass tank with the full set-up -- hood, light, filter and filter cartridge, the only thing you'd need to buy is a heater. This is the tank I have my betta Tofu in by himself. And it could be divided, so that each girl got 2.5 gallons to themselves.

In the meantime, how often are you doing water changes on the girl's divided container? You need to do a 100% water change every other day, otherwise it is going to affect their health greatly, because of the ammonia build-up from two fish in such a small enclosure.

Don't worry. No it isn't. Just do plenty of water changes.

Okay, the girl's tank is bigger than I first thought, they look fine. It's the vase, that I would upgrade into something a bit bigger, with more water volume, so that he'll have more swimming space.
