Jasper's Angel: If it's cycled, water changes depend on the size of the tank and how many fish you have in there. A cycled divided 10 gallon with two bettas in it might need about 30-40% a week changed.

NikiandBeyond: As far as I know collapsing fins just means they have a bit of a harder time flaring to their full potential, so when they flare, they still look a bit droopy. However, that shouldn't threaten his actual health. :)

My plan is to divide it with sealant this time so the divider is permanent, and put two lil' girl's in the 5g. divided, so each girl has 2.5g..

Are girl's able to live in a divided tank?
Like will it stress them out to much?

That sounds like a good plan...
I think the girls will be okay, they would probably have to be really aggressive to stress each other out... Good Luck!

You should cycle it before getting the girls, that way you only have to do partial water changes once a week. do you know how to do a fishless cycle?

'Nother question: I'm looking into getting a nice little setup for my work desk in a month or so. Because it's going on my desk, it won't be that big--I have to go to my LPS to see what they have, but it won't be over 3 gal.

For a heater, what can I get that's both reliable and not too big for a small tank? It's always freezing in our office, something like 65-70 F. But I also don't want to overdo the heater and cook my poor fish.

Get a fully submersible adjustable heater if possible. Go with a good brand like Marineland, because then you'll know it'll work alright, even if it is a bit too large for the tank.
