5 Gal setup

I recently purchased a 5 gallon tank for my male betta. After reading this site more and more I wanted another betta. I was wondering if any stores sell dividers for 5 gal tanks and if that would even be a good idea considering filtration, heating, etc.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

ps I will upload pictures when I can find my camera

Welcome!

You could check ebay or amazon for a divider. I'm not sure what sizes they come in, in store. I haven't needed them. But I do know you can find them online if you need. 2.5 gallons a betta is fine :)

Hahaha, it's easy to catch. They're so simple to take care of though, as long as you pay attention. And their personalities are charming as all hell <3

I've had them before and I wanted something simple I could take off to college. Perfect candidate and really nice to look at

For sure, and besides weekly water changes, they're not difficult to take care of. And with a 5 gallon, you should mostly only have to do partials. :)

I have a split 5.5. There is actually a way to home-make a divider. That is what I did. Someone else should have the link... Or I'll brb with it.
