Talking Betta Condo

If you were using a betta condo, what would be the smallest tank you would use it in?
I was also wondering, where you can find a Condo
("Penn-Plax Betta Condo") in stores?
(Preferably Petco, Petsmart, Walmart, etc.)

or

for pictures.

Thanks

Why would you want to use that???? No offense. But that is not an appropriate home AT all.

That is NOT an okay betta home. Try dividing 20g 4 ways if you wanna go that route! That was under a gallon for all four bettas combined! yuck!

That is not good for a betta to live in. I can understand a breeder getting it for pics for only a few minutes but it shouldn't be a home for bettas.

I really can't keep my 10g tank clean for more than a day with two dividers in it and they just keep fogging up. I think I might have to re-home my three boys because I wasn't expecting to get this busy when I got them, and I really don't have time to clean each section every other day.
I can not buy any other tanks. I'm not even supposed to have the one I have now.
I need a way to more efficiently divide my tank or I have to get rid of them.
My dad WILL flush them if it gets out of hand, dead OR alive.
k
Bye.

I wasn't sure what you meant by "fogging up," but have you tried a different filter? My tank would get scum on the surface very quickly so I bought a TOM internal mini filter ($12 or $14 at petsmart.) It cleared it right up. It says it can control up to 5 gals, so what if you saved up and got 2? you could put one on each side, and that might help keep you tank much cleaner.

*edit* didn't realize you said you have THREE boys, but what if you still got 2 TOM's and put on on each end of the tank? it should still do the trick, plus they're extremly quiet filters.
