That's not a good idea. You can divide a 20 long into five sections, but 5 sections in a 10 gal tank will not work. It doesn't give the fish enough room to swim. Bettas need surface area more than they need depth. You can divide a 10 into 3 sections, tho.

ETA: http://www.petfish.net/articles/Do-I...k_dividers.php This is the tutorial I used to divide my tank. I did not use the plexiglass one. That is not for beginners and very time consuming.

I planned to divide my 10gal, but I didn't like the way it looked. It didn't seem like there was enough room for two fish. Thats my opinion. If you want to go for it.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)
