I have never had any luck with tempoary dividers, the fish always seem to get by them, resulting in 2 very sad looking fish..
I am currently dividing some 16 gal tanks, and I am using glass held in with silicone sealant to effectively make 2 tanks in one.. The two tanks that I have set up, one has been up and running for a week, and the other was done yesterday.. I have silk plants placed along the divider so as to obscure as much of the other tank as possible, but they can still see each other..
The one that has been going for a week houses 2 males, Harley and Oliver (Oliver is my avater).. It's quite funny when you think about it.. Prior to being placed in his new home, Harley spent some time in a breeder box/net in a tank with my boy Noah.. Noah couldnt have cared less (no flaring), but Harley flared and tried to break out of the breeder box every time Noah came near him..
NOW, Harley shares a tank with Oliver, they both flared like crazy for a day or two, but now Harley swims around quite content, where Oliver still flares as soon as he sees Harley...
