Can I move my Betta into a smaller tank?
So I know the title sounds terrible but I'll give you the situation: I recently moved my plakat betta, Arlo into my 60L fish tank (I'm not sure what that is exactly in gallons, but I think 5.5 gallon is around 20L!) And after a few days in the tank, feel as though the tank is a bit well, 'boring' with just one fish.. he loves all the space of course but I was thinking of dividing the tank into 2 x 30L compartments and getting another betta! My worry is that, is it really cruel of me to halve the swimming space my betta currently has? Or will it be okay as it is still a fair amount of space? The dividers I
bought - originally for a different tank - are coming from China so it won't be here for a while. Meaning Arlo will probably be well settled in by the time they do arrive.. the tank is heavily planted and will need a little rearranging to put a divider in. I don't mind not dividing it if it is going to be too cruel for Arlo but if he would still be happy I would love to get another Betta haha. I'm not keen on adding any other fish to the tank either if it remains as a 60L so I would only do a divider tank or leave it as is really! Any thoughts and suggestions appreciated 🙂
