i have a question on dealing with a 5gal divided tank. i dont have the tank just yet but it will be divided. my green DT will go back in the 2.5 due to his IAL water. Nel and Osiris will go in the 5g. Osiris is rather young maybe 2-4 months judging from size (2' long half is tails). Nel is much older (age unkown) maybe 2.5' long. its no hurry as osiris is still getting used to the .5g and nel likes a 2.5 atm. i dont know the best order to put them in when the 5g is ready. should i put the younger betta in or the older one first?

the friends that gave the 1gal are great people but its irritating to talk bettas with them. the no heater, champagne glass home, room temperature and use water conditioner etc type of person. the mother doesnt see much use of a heater, same for the father and son.

That sucks Nel.


I would say the older one...but i don't think it really matters.

hey guys, do you think two female babies in a divided 2.5 gallon temporary tank is okay?

they're barely an inch long each.

thank you, il'll wait a few days before adding the second one. i think nel will go in the 5 gal first to give osiris more time to to adjust. is it possible it cant work out if they flare too much at each other?

lol the mother expects me to transport the bettas in their tank at a reduced water level. i wont even bother doung that, i already have some fish bags.

sry for the double post. nel (VT) has been in the 2.5g for just over a week with bublenests every few days. did last 50wc 3 days ago. he's bitten off sections of his caudal (1/4 x1/4'') on top part. should i keep him in the 2.5 and wait it out or put him back in the 0,5 where he didnt bite his tail. he's in a heated tank atm vs a .5g unheated. this happened within the past few hours i was sleeping, previous days he was just fine. dont have time to take a pic atm, will be busy away most of the day.

I should think so. Normally that size tank is pretty small to divide, but if it's only temporary I think it would be okay. If the tank is tall rather than wide it might create some oddly-shaped spaces, but as long as they could get to the top for air I don't see why it wouldn't work.
