What would you do with a 40g tank?

So I'm getting a 40g long tank this weekend and I'm unsure of what I want to put into it.

I'm leaning towards dividing it since its an excuse to buy more bettas 8D

I was thinking of dividing it in half and have 20 gallons dedicated to a sorority, and dividing the other half 2 or 3 more times and getting some more males.

Does this sound like it could work out? I've heard of people dividing tanks and keeping females and males next to each other, but never of a sorority next to a male.



I'd also love some suggestions on what to do with the tank though, since I'm unsure still.

So would would you do with a 40 gallon tank?
(Please keep it betta related, I know for sure I want at least one more!)

I was really in between getting a 40breeder or a 20long during petcos 1dollar per galllon sale...I ended up going with the 20, but only because I already had a filter and a heater for a 20...Otherwise I would have got the 40 and divided it up! haha

lol!

The reason I'm getting the 40g is because the dollar per gallon sale, ours lasts until the 22nd.

I also think the treat your pets sale is going on as well, which means bettas are half off


So I cant even pass this opportunity up LOL

Oh man, if I had a 40 gallon tank I would probably do a low-tech planted setup with some gouramis! I love those fish and I miss having them... buuuut if you want to keep it betta related, maybe you could do a huge sorority?? Not sure how many females you can put together, I've only ever had males. Or you could do maybe a divided double sorority, 20 on each side :) That would be neat!

I use to have gouramis!
That was forever ago lol XD


I was thinking of a huge sorority, but I do like males too, and Gaston would have way to much of an ego pimpin' around a 40g filled with ladies :P

A divided sorority would probably work out better as one big one since the aggression would be spread out more ^^

Im still leaning towards dividing it all up and filling it with boys XD
