Can i divide it again?

Ive got a 5gal tank, divided into 2, so 2.5gals each. i was wondering if i could go any smaller? Its got a really nice filter, and a heater which is at 78-80 all the time Could i divide the tank once more? Im just curious :) if i were to get another betta, wouldnt 1.7gals of water be better then the tiny cup they get at the store?

The problem with dividing it again would be that they would have very little horizontal space to swim. Plus, they'd only have 1.25 gallons each. I'd not recommend it.

I wouldn't divide a 5 gallon 3 ways.I would get another 5 gallon or get a 10 gallon and divide that up, that way they have plenty of swimming room.

I would do as Littlebitty said buy another 5gal and divide that or a 10 gal. Yea 1.7gal is better then a cup, but you bought those bettas so that you could give them a better life than a cup didnt you? 5-10gal tanks from what i have seen are cheap as chips in america so you shouldnt have a problem getting a another 5 gal with a small budget, plus then you can get 2 MORE BETTAS instead of 1 more :)
