I disagree with your claim about divided tanks; it should be number two on the list. My two bettas live in a divided 20 gallon long, so each has about 10 gallons worth of space. They are big, healthy boys. If you're a good fish owner, your fish will not get sick, or at least you'll catch it early enough to remove the betta and treat it in a hospital tank.
Kim I know from personal experience about what the final days look like. I’m only twelve years old and my 2 1/2 year old betta fish named Ford wasn’t stressed in his final days. He got a new 5-10 gallon tank. He used to be in a 1-3 gallon tank. He was a lot more happier in a bigger tank but it was his time. The last days are sad. First I saw he ate a lot less. Then he didn’t go for the food and ate off the bottom of the tank. Then he got pretty wide in a couple of days. I was scared and knew that was it. The next day he was not moving. Sitting at the bottom. We scooted his tank to see if he was alive but no he was gone. I love him. So I buried him today and got a new betta. A elephant ear male betta. He is small but he’s growing and happy. The pellets are too big for him so I feed him a really small amount of flakes because he is so small. Ford was old and grew purple and blue scales in his life time but started with some red. I miss him because he passed yesterday on Sunday January 3rd. I buried him on the 4th in 2016. The steps of death by old age scared me but now I know and u do to. Hope this helps good luck!!

Betta Fish In A 1 Gallon Tank? | My Aquarium Club
I got my betta fish 1 week ago. Barnabas is housed in a 1 gallon fish tank with a java fern and a filter. I use tap water that has been dechlorinated with 1 tsp of aquarium salt. The tank has gravel, some marbles and fake corals. How often do I need to do partial water changes and full water changes? Also, what is water nitrogen cycling and is it applicable to my fish in his 1 gallon tank? I do not have any nitrate and ammonia meters, nor do I plan on getting them. So how often and how much water should I change? Furthermore, I have noticed that Barnabas is showing some signs of fin rot as his tail is a bit frayed. Please help and advice thanks 🙂 sorry I don't agree, my betta is in a 100 gallon tank now, coming out of a 15 gallon tank, and it was funny to see, how he reacted at the space he got, and how happy he was. I think, a betta deserves a lot better as living in such a small half a gallon tank. And I really don't say everyone has to get a 100 gallon tank for his fish, but a little space to swim en spread its finns and tail it really shoud have, its a fish, and fish do like to swim, and for that, they just need some space.Pet store bettas are, unfortunately, usually sick when you get them. The best thing to do is read up on them before buying and see if you can find one that's relatively healthy. You can also ask someone at the pet store when they normally get more bettas and try to get one from a new shipment.
If you're using melafix, use half or less of the recommended dose. There is another product by the same company called "bettafix", which is essentially the same but diluted. Melafix is actually pretty toxic, and bettas are affected by it more than most fish.
I always treated fin rot with just clean water and aquarium salt - about 1 teaspoon per 2.5 gallons of water. I'd put them in a smaller tank (my 2.5 gallon one instead of my 10 gallon one, usually) and change the water every day.This is my females Bettas 'Julie's 1 gallon betta tank tour!
