That's exactly what I did! Unfortunately I had something weird happen and lost 2 bettas in my divided 10 gallon (they were 100% happy and healthy and 3 days in my divided 10 and they are both dead :( ). Right now I can't rule out the black plastic mesh or the report clips as the cause (it could be ANYTHING though, so I also can't rule that IN). So just be really careful to rinse everything you put in your new tank!

No, I meant buy the sturdier than the diy ones from the store (the premade ones) and remove that clear part, then swap with the mesh.

I personally do not like DIY ones, not at alllll.

So should I only put two bettas in my 10 gallon?

Technically you could divide it 4 ways, because that would give them 2.5 gallons each, but it would be mostly vertical room and bettas prefer horizontal. Three is the most I would do, and it gives each betta 3.3~ gallons each.

I agree. I think 3 is fine, because it's still 10 gallons :) 4 is too much tho, for the reason cryscat mentioned :) (IMO!)

I've got the heater in the middle of the tank with Ralis, my DT, so that it spreads the heat evenly to both sides. The far left gets the thermometer with my lil girl fishy, Ruto, so that I know what the temperature is on the extreme left/right of the tank.

So far, they all seem VERY happy in their home as it's set up right now. I can take a picture to show you if you like. :D
Yes, pictures, please!
