Question keeping my males together

With dividers of course.

I'm wondering what would work good for dividers, where i can get it, how much it is


oh if u haven't read my previous post, I'm, dumping da sorority (I'm going to give da girls da guy's tanks, and vise-versa)

anyway, I have a 10 gallon you see, which would give my males about 2.5 gallons ea. Wat should I do about my two otos?

I bet you guys will think up a million other things, so thanks for da ideas

You can use plastic mesh and essay binders but I don't think I would divide a 10 gallon 4 times... that would be really crowded. 3 sections is the most I would do.

Of the divider? Sorry I don't have any... I only have one divided tank so far and I bought a divider for that. Ask Doggyhog.. I think she has homemade dividers and she probably has pictures.

Well, here's one of my tanks. :)

I suppose you COULD do 4 sections.... I plan on dividing an empty 10g that I have into 4 sections once I have fry.

I won't post pics of my other divided 10g, 'cause it's not as pretty, it's bare bottom and just very simple.

Hey K Stiles! I was actually wondering a few days ago where you've been.

I'm planning on splitting by 10 gallon 5 ways (2 gallons per boy). I don't think it'll be very aesthetically pleasing, but I'll let you know how it goes. :P


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

Thanks guys! doggyhog, how did u muffle the flow of the filter, and let me know how da 4 way works
also, that looks good, but would it be wise cut the acess divider off, because my 10gal has a light for it too

and jupiter, that sounds good too. I have been gone for a while, but now im back, did u see my other post in the deaseas and emergencies, thats why im dividing my tank

Just wanted to let you know that I split my tank in 5! It's actually not too bad. Doesn't look as crowded as I thought it would.

But there's a con: there's not much room for plants and decor. So if you have the option, I'd probably only split it 3 or 4 ways so your bettas can have more things in their sections.
