Yes shes got tons of swimming space, about as much as an adult betta in a 5 gallon would have it looks like. Im off for the night, thank you both for the advice and suggestions. This feels pretty fun now that i have a plan. Hopefully she stays tough. Still swimming circles easily at the surface. Ill post a thread in offtopic tomorrow on her so i can stop bumping this one. :) night!
Electra is doing quite well! Her and old man both. If you have facebook (or not, im not sure) you can view them in their 10 gallon split :)
shes got some eggyness from seeing him on and off but no ill effects so far :)
