How many times can you split a 10 gallon?

I have one betta (soon to be 2 when AB fishy arrives) in a 10 gallon. Just for future reference if I ever want to get another one, can I split the 10 gallon into three parts? Would that be enough room for each betta? Thanks!

Yep! That would totally be enough for each Betta. Just be sure the Divider is in place! :3

Can I recommend 3 Ghost Shrimp in each section? Or a snail? I think that would be cool.

Awesome! That was also my next question, if that would be enough room for some ghost shrimp! I don't know if my guys would think of them as a tasty snack or not, but I thought it would be worth a shot if a 3 way split in a 10 gallon would be enough room. Thanks!!

3 parts should be ok, but i wouldn't go more then that

The shrimp might be ok, but i think just adding a plant to each section would help alot too.

Oh yes you are going to need to provide them lots of places to hide. Just in case.

They would probably eat the shrimp but you can try it. Get some plants though, it'll help them hide and clean the water to a certain extent.

I have my 10g divided to four sections, it gives each fish about 2.5g.

A 10G divided 3-ways is a delight to keep. Finding the right filter can be tricky, but once you get that down you're golden.

Here's mine:


Filter is a Fluval U1, which is VERY quiet and directs a steady flow of water along the back, allowing circulation even in the last section. Choose the fish that is least affected by currents to be in the sector with the filter.

I've tried "roomies" with them before, the results were less than desirable. As in, dinner was had. Bettas are territorial and food-oriented. Snails are a better choice than shrimp in my opinion, but I hear they poop a lot so...

I'm going to be putting up a tutorial in a day or so on how I make my dividers, if you need any help with that. There's a lot of DIY methods out there, but some are flimsier than others.

Your tank is stunning!!!! I love the dividers, definitely would like a tutorial on how to do it like yours, so beautiful! (and of course your bettas are striking as well!)

Thanks again for the help everyone!
