    i want to make a divider for a 10 gallon tank for 2 male bettas. how would i do this? what material should i use i tried a plastic like material but it ended up falling apart. i really want to cut down my maintenance by combineing 2 tanks into one tank while also upgrading each betta with 5 gallons each but prevent fighting. please help.

    ok so i went out and did this it uses suction cups instead of a binder holder but it works ok. it took all day to do the divider patched a few holes and planted it a bit. when i get more time ill really plant it so i can have a double decker betta garden with my sorority on top and males on the bottom

    As long as it's snug, it should be fine. It actually took me a lot of fiddling to get mine just right -- For the first few days, my boys kept getting into each other's sections. Luckily there wasn't any violence, or even flaring.

    I'm probably misunderstanding you, but do you mean in a single tank? Bettas need to be able to get to the surface to breathe, so all dividers need to be put in vertically so each fish can access the surface. A horizontal divider that makes two levels would prevent the bottom bettas from getting air.
