yup, figured id have to drain and seal the divider....nothings ever easy is it? thanks for the replies
on pic 3, why is there a gap? Are you putting in moss in between?
I'd be interested on how much you think the Kordon Fish Protector helps your fish's fins heal. My betta cut himself on who knows what in his tank; I'm doing water changes with Prime now (says it helps generate slime coat) but I've been considering getting Fish Protector.
How hard is it to get the fish out of the middle "trap"?
I did something similar with my 10 gallon grow out tank. Instead of putting bursting female guppies in a small net I used that same plastic (from JoAnn's fabric) and sectioned off about 3 gallons for her to relax and drop her fry. I used suction cups to keep the mesh in place and have it go about an inch above the water level level. How is yours staying put, just pressure or the plastic report binder trick?
good idea, why not just keep the water level down?
my tanks have glass tops that almost touch the top of my dividers. so if any of them jump they will smack the lid.
I might have to try fish protector. iv been using stress guard, prime, vita chem and sometimes salt.
If you get the plastic dividers you don't need to have 2 mesh in there. The gap isn't something that should be there either. If they are jumping, lower your water level.
Oden sounds like a very fun betta companion. it took my bettas awhile to settle down after I moved them next to each other.
Not at the point to do this yet, but considering it. My kids (6 and 4) are sad we only have 1 fish. If I have a hob filter that can only fit on far right side of tank (due to cut out in lid) and the heater placed on the opposite side (same reason), will the tank get proper water flow and even heat distribution? My filter is beveled so the water stream goes lengthwise down the tank.
Curious if this set up is possible to divide.
