I'm at a dilema here, whether I want to divide my new 10 gallon planted tank into 2, or should I go 3?
I originally bought the tank for just one betta, but decided I was selling myself short considering people often keep them in just 2.5 gallons, I could do so much more with the tank.
So I bought one divider, 3 Java Fern, 3 Scarlet Ludwigia, and some fancy seashells I've had for years.
Now I can't decide if I want to divide into 2, or go for 3. I'd like to have an oto cat bottom feeder and a snail in each section, but I can't decide!
If I divide into 2, I'll be able to split my filter down the middle, and if I go into 3rds I'll have to worry about overloading one betta with too much flow. With 2 divides I get more decor on each side, and probably an extra tankmate on each side too, but I already have my first betta sectioned off in his 1/3rd and like how it looks.
But I really want 2 more bettas. My lil Goku (yep... Goku) is really happy, but seems bored all the time, but he's very healthy. I need to decide if I want to divide in 2, or divide in 3 before I go out and buy the finishing hard decor.
