I'm no expert on this but you have cycled the tank and are testing the water parameters regularly right? If not there are many threads on here for that, it takes 30 or so days fishless cycle.
I use terracota pots for my caves, Just be sure to plug the hole in the bottom with a stone and some aquarium sealant so fishie doesn't get his head stuck . I boil and soak mine first in conditioned water :)
I learned all this and more at this forum-love it!

Yeah the tank is cycled and everything, I test the water weekly at the local pet store. Something I am concerned about is if taking the water and going to the pet store with it makes it change any, like lose acidic readings or anything like that. My readings seem really... normal?

The tank is 3 weeks old and it has "good" readings according to petsmart. (Done going there lol, I'll see what petco says from now on, they have some smart people there)

If you divide into 3rds, the middle Betta may get stressed out more than the other two. He will have opponents on both sides of him that he believes he needs to protect his home from. Some do fine, but one of mine ended up listless at the bottom until I made the tanks only 2 Betta each. You can try 3, but be prepared to get another tank for the 3rd if things go down hill.

I'm considering some fake biOrb plants to obstruct the view on both sides of the dividers, we'll see how that works. Or some soft wart plant :P
