2 gal to a 20 gallon(divided)

Hello. I have a 2 gallon tank holding my betta fish. I also have a 20 gallon tank holding 3 swordtails(1 female 2 males and I know the rule but my other females have died recently) and 5 danios(3 zebras 2 longfin). Although I like both tank very much I want to use the 2 gallon tank for something else. I was wondering if I could put a divider of sorts in the 20 gallon tank(10" for the betta and 20" for the rest)... Good idea? I would get a net type divider btw.

Sounds like it would work just fine, and your betta will love all the new room your giving him.

So my betta wouldn't try to jump over for the swordtails or be aggresive to anything or to be worried about something else?

As long as the net is above the water line, I'm not betta expert but I doubt they are a fish that jumps out of the water readily. If your worried about this then go buy a hood for your tank so there is no room, you might see him flare at the swordtails occasionally through the net but this is natural for bettas and probably a healthy activity for them as long as they are not always in a fighting stance. Or you can go find a colored plastic divider so they can't see through.
