No! Don't mix males and females. They will rip each other apart. Split the tank into 3 sections instead, so each betta gets its own space.

They mean get your parents to buy you a new divider, it's very important. The girl needs her own space and fast! Being in the water with the boys will make the male with her try to constantly mate with her, which will tire her out and she will fight back, and when bettas fight it gets nasty and they could kill each other. Bettas also release hormones into the water, you could end up with a worse situation where the other male jumps the divider and all three are on one side..YIKES!

Separate them somehow, even if she has to stay in a vase until you can get her a new home/new divider!

Talk to your parents, tell them your fish very well could die if you don't get the new divider, they aren't TOO expensive, offer to do chores to pay them back

but anyway.. Just try. It's very important! The critter keeper will do for now, but she'll need her own set up or a divider ASAP!
