I plan on getting several of those little filters that run on the air pump, and then getting a splitter and running all six off the same pump. Easy. :)

Fantastic idea Gizmo! That's why I love air pumps, they're so immensely versatile; they save space, time, money and electricity hehe. You can even make your own sponge filters if you want to save a few pennies and rig it all up fancy...

I'm rescaping my divided tank, one half at a time! Do Kaze's half, take a rest (I tend to get rather achey after rescaping), do Echo's half, take another rest then proceed to dream of ADFs.

I'd still love to get an ADF one day, but I think for now I'll still have to pass... I honestly... am running out of space. My room is the smallest bedroom in the house but it has the most in it in terms of animals and plants I've continued to "stalk" this topic and am still learning so if I'm ever lucky enough to take the plunge I'll feel completely confident.

Thank you

I have been having too many problems with divided tanks lately, so I decided to move everyone to their own tanks so I can just treat anything they get as it comes, rather than try and get four bettas at a time on medication and well... Or losing four bettas in a week because I didn't catch the illness fast enough... :/

I do love the way the divided tanks look though, so some day I am going to build a proper barracks, but all of the spaces will be totally closed off from the other parts. Lol! All the look, none of the hassle! Yay for plexiglass!

Plexiglass is a lifesaver, I use styrene myself though as it's available locally. My tank lid is made of it (though it came with a hood I couldn't change the light fitting so we've got a home made styrene lid instead).

I had reservations about dividing my betta tank but I thought it would be beneficial as both fish would have more swimming space. Luckily I only have two so I can quickly spot any problems and treat accordingly -- though there is an associated risk that must be considered. If I could I'd have the fish separately but I also like only running one filter and heater... and light, makes me feel less like a financial burden unto my parents.

I look forward to the day when I can devise a cunning plan to have the fish in barracks style accommodation whilst still using minimal electricity! If I ever find I have to remove one fish and keep him separate I will, the fish come first in my eyes but things seem all right for the time being. Looking forward to the rescape!

Sorry for getting a bit off topic.
