A former call center in Boulder, Colorado replaced their boring desk dividers with fish tanks, turning their staid office into a giant aquarium. According to the , the tank was built in 2000 and the numerous tanks provided soothing background/white noise for the call center employees.
Male betta fish cannot live with other male betta fish. You CAN keep two male bettas together in one tank as long as they are separated by a divider. You can get a clear acrylic divider on ebay if you don't like the Canvas Mesh. They also come in a black color that is not see through. I also recomend using live plants so that it can be a more natural betta fish tank.

Three bettas in a ten gallon is a little too tight. Bettas love to have a "flare buddy" but they also need to be able to retreat when they must. In your initial setup the poor betta in the middle would probably die of anxiety or whatever the fish equivalent is. Two male bettas in a ten-gallon tank with a mesh divider works well, as they can flare at each other and then move back into their corners to get away. Put a male and a female in a divided tank and after a few days they'll stay together at the divider; then you can remove it and they stick together like an old married couple. If he builds a bubble nest and they breed you'll have to remove her, though, as betta males guard the nest and he'll try to drive her away. And if you breed bettas you can run a tank with a couple or three brood-mate males and several females and they school together pretty well without fighting.I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how to have more than one in a tank. One question though. Couldn't you just rough up the clear dividers with some fine grit sandpaper and make the surface opaque. Or would the mere silhouette of another fish anger them. If you plan to keep two male betta fish in the same tank, you better have a divider to separate the two; otherwise, fins will be torn to shreds.- If your tank is under 5 gallons, it should not be divided. Even if you want it to be, it’s not ok! Don’t do it. Things get really bad really fast in under 5 gallons with more than one betta. Even though each fish would "get" xx number of gallons of space in under 5 gallons, that means the space is really tight, and the poor fish can't get away from each other. This is stressful and needless.
