I have this and love it, it has dividers and just needs a little bubbler and its external:

I have a few of these as well, they hang on the inside and are divided:

Good luck!
Thank you! I'm also wondering if it's ok for them to see each other through the glass/plastic... Especially males.

I have several hundred males in 2 litre soda bottles. Cheaper than buying vases or jars, you just have to find people to drink the soda and remember to rinse them and save them for you. My Bettas flare at each other all day. If they get bored flaring at one guy they can turn around and flare at the one on the other side. I've been at this seriously for over 5 years now and usually have 2 to 5 hundred adult males on hand at any given time. They do not get stressed out or get traumatized by losing an imaginary fight with their neighbor. If you feel they might get over stimulated there are ways to put up removable solid color dividers to limit their exercise, excitement or stress; how ever you want to catagorize it.

Hey, welcome to the forum! I've seen your bettas on aquabid, very nice! And I would imagine getting that much soda drank can be an issue. It is a good idea though, and I had started a collection of them a couple months ago with that in mind. Sadly my boyfriend didn't realize I was trying to keep them and tossed most of them out...

At the moment I don't have any issues with housing males as my babies are still too young to have to separate and I only have 3 adult males. One has his own 10 and two others share a 10 with a craft mesh divider that they can't really see through. I'm not sure they have ever noticed one another.

I almost bought a dumbo ear delta tail today. If only I didn't have another stop to make (and if only I was in my car and not on the back of a moped) he would have come home with me. Instead I am going in on Friday when she gets more in so I can have my pick.

Ok thanks good to know. Do you heat the bottles somehow?

Wow! Where do you keep that many 2 litre bottles? That must take up a massive amount of room!
