Split Betta tank

Downoi, crypts, anubis petite, wendilov fern on the left.

Dwarf Hairgrass, anubis petite, dwarf sag (which I have never had luck with before), and wendilov fern on the right.

Divider is a phenolic plastic that slides into grooves of the tank. Might paint it black but right now its still white.

No filtration yet. Thinking individual sponges or a crosover sponge (intake on oneside, output on the other). Thoughts?

As long as you plant heavily, have the right light and maybe add some floaters, you should be OK without a filter. My 1.75 betta tank has been up since early June of last year and it's doing great.

I think it looks like too small a tank, then again I have a single betta in a 5 gallon. I like the idea of having space to put wood and plants with enough room for the betta to swim around.

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

They used to have 5 gallon each. But there are 4 of them and the others are still in a 1 gallon plexicrap petsmart special. How heavy should I plant? I have a 75 and a 55 I can pull from, those are just smaller plants.

A heavy as you dare. I would plant along the back and sides, densely in the corners and leave the center open. Maybe put something like empty pots or pvc piping covered in moss in the center so they can each have a hidey hole.
