2.5 gallon split?

Can I split a 2.5 gallon tank and put two betta fishes in it? will my betta still have a good life?

bad idea. i use this kinda math 1x betta = 2 gal
if you want to split you should start with a ten gal and split three ways like most people do thats a little over 3 gal per fish

oh, well never mind then :) thanks for the advice, i just saw a mini bow 2.5 that comes with a betta divider, it had pretty good reviews. i heard that some bettas tend to be happy in a 1 gallon tank?

my VT, Cup, was in a one gallon when i got him. after moving him to his 2.5, i noticed a HUGE change. his fins grew to be MASSIVE! i've never seen a VT with fins like his! i'm sure he wouldn't have grown such amazing fins, if he was left in his one gallon. :3(they're so big, i can't keep him in the cup i got him in. he spazzes and he nearly takes up the whole cup!)
