sounds like the best thing to do is get a 5 gallon tank and a divider (that way each of the fish will have 2.5 gallons of room, and not a small 1.25 gallons) and make sure that Grell is on the side away from the filter! Also, the larger tank including the filter will make maintenance a lot less harder and you won't have to do as frequent water changes...

Well what i planned to do was get a 2.5 gallon tank for each of them. But i like the idea of deviding a five gallon tank.

Yeah I was going to suggest dividing a 5gal if you were thinking of getting them each 2.5 gals :) I have this 6.6gal tank and am thinking of dividing it myself.

I would understand that. It would be a lot easier to maintain.

I agree with the 5 divided. I currently have a 10 divided 3 ways and a 5 divided in half.

5 gallon is best but 2.5 is also fine.

I think a five divided is a great idea. But i might want to get them both their own five gallon tanks. I heard that betta fish like space.

Yes, the more space the better. I have a 10 gallon for my purple veil tail and he loves it! I couldn't divide mine though, as it is a cube tank and not rectangular so each fish would be able to swim for a good length up and down but not a lot to the side. :'(
