I took my 20L down a few months ago, decided to put it back up. I have divided the tank into 5 sections with plastic mesh. I siliconed the mesh into place, no gaps to be had for the bettas to get through to the other side. Let it sit for 4 days for the silicone to set, just to be on the safe side. Tank is now full of water and running. Has a heater and filter, live plants and driftwood. I used black/white sand.

The tank is home to 2 Halfmoons, a delta tail, and 2 HM Kings(giant). I will post photos of them later on.

So far I have no issues. All bettas are healthy, building bubble nests and actively looking for food when I’m near the tank. My one HM King flares at his reflection on and off all day, guessing he’s quite aggressive. My other HM King likes to bite my fingers. My other three boys lay around or beg. I love bettas, each has a unique personality.

I moved things around in the betta tank. Everyone is doing great and is actively eating!

I had torn down the dividers, has I only have one betta left in the tank. Lost four of my bettas that were in the tank. I still have two, one is in my 40 Breeder. I had moved my remaining king betta to a 5 gallon hex, but he got himself stuck under a rock and died.
Currently the the betta in the tank is my gold Halfmoon male.

Sorry to hear!

You do seem to change things up often. Loosing fish is a risk you have to assume when doing that.

Bettas have been a hit or miss lately especially from big box stores for me. I have a halfmoon male in my 5 gallon hex tank that was an imported betta and he’s thriving. The 20 gallon long is being converted back into a community tank, maybe go back to my koi betta has the center piece for the tank. The tank currently has 7 harlequin rasboras, 4 juili corydoras, trio of platys(they never breed for me) and a blue ram that I can move back to the other tank.
Looking to add a few more Rasboras, 2 more corydoras and a bristlenose pleco. This includes the koi betta.

I had to tear down my 20 in order to move it. One of my coworkers had taken my old emperor filter and the fish that I had in the tank for his 60 gallon tank. I had put together a new stand for the tank, it had sat on a heavy duty shelf for years. Put dividers back in and filled it back up again. I have an internal filter in the tank right now. Only fish I kept was my clown pleco. I do have bettas in the tank again. It’s divided into 4 sections. I have a crowntail, dumbo, blue marble and a rosetail.
