That tank is too small for one betta, let alone two. 2.5 gal is the minimum tank size for one betta.Shedzy1985 said:Hi, I'm looking at buying the aqua one betta duo tank. As for cycling, if I put the filter sponges in my current established tank for a couple of weeks and siphon the water from my current tank, will it then be ready to add the fish?

Bigger is most always better, but a 10 gal divided in half is perfectly adequate and healthy for a betta. A 10 gal won't necessarily have more problems than a 15 gal.Pikachu13131 said:They will have less problems with a 15 and its a couple inches bigger.
When I googled it, I saw something very different with a much smaller tank size. Thanks for clarification! I must've been looking at something different.Bithimala said:In regards to the cycling, yes, running the sponge filters in your current tank will help seed the media and drastically reduce the time needed to cycle the new tanks, but using the old tank water will do basically nothing.
I'm going to clarify something, I think the size of the tank is ok for two bettas. It's smaller than I would personally do, but it is a 5.3 gallon tank, which gives you about 2-2.5 gallons per betta (depending on how much room that filtration takes up in the back).
I don't, however, think it's worth the price, and I don't like the fact that you can't really change it around if you decide you do want to give your little ones more space later on, but that may just be my personal like of being able to customize things as I go.
At least you aren't cramming two betta into a half gallon "betta view" from WalmartShedzy1985 said:I ended up getting the trio tank yesterday which is 32 litre. I only just saw these replys. I'm worried now
