I currently have two bettas one in a 2 gal tank and 1 in a 2.5 gal Aqueon Mini Tank. (NOT the mini Bow. THIS
one.) It has two glass dividers that can be put in, giving each of three bays .8333 gal.
I am going to be going away alot during the summer months and since this tank has a cover (just got one) and the bowl does not I was thinking about putting in one of the dividers and having Bo on the big side (~1.5 gal) and Princess (Small female crowntail) on the other (Just under 1 gal)
Do you think she will do OK in such a small space?
I am thinking it is better then to go away for a week at a time and let the water evaporate so the filters don't work(.....or overheat......or catch fire.....whatever.)
The tank is cycled so I am not worried so much about water changes - besides I won't be away for more then a week at time.
(I will add, the dividers are glass and I wondered how the water would circulate - but my local fish store has the same tank with both dividers in and three bettas and tell me that the water circulates just fine. They are the store's pet fish and Not For Sale. Also this store is not selling me anything I bought the tank dividers and stuff elsewhere)
