I have a 20 Long divided 4 ways.. & all of the betta's flared like crazy the 1st couple days. now they will occasionally flare at each other (like once every 2 or 3 days I will see a pair flareing). & there all happy. Also it seems like they competively make bubble nest's... Its a site to see when I come home & half of the tank is covered in them.

What if I put the heater near the divider? And, what type of dark mesh should I use and where can I get it? Cheap please!

Mesh is less than a buck a pop nearly anywhere. Even at walmart a whole pack is only like $3. THe single ones at craft stores are .30-$1 each.

The heater by the divider helps, but only so-so. Its good to have at least one filter going.

Idk where you live, but places like Michael's and JoAnn's fabrics have tons.

Heh - I had a double wall of mesh in my tank, and Norman still wanted nothing to do with it. He bit his tail a couple times the first day, and would NOT give up. I was afraid he'd have no tail left, and I hated seeing him so worked up, so I took him out. He seems happier in his very own 2-gallon, so I'll just leave him be. I guess some bettas just aren't cut out to be roommates. ;)
