XD Yeah, that's a bottle wrapped around the filter intake, to prevent the betta from getting stuck to the side. The filter is in the back left corner of the tank. The divider is a store bought one with the clear material replaced with a black mesh from Michaels.

Finally got an updated photo of my aquarium!

Right, for a sponge filter you need the following:
- Air pump
For a 10 gallon you won't need an overly powerful one. I use a Tetra brand one.
- Air line
It's better to get too much rather than too little just in case some of it splits so I'd suggest buying about a meter or so. It also depends on where the pump will be situated.
- Air-Flow Valve
This should come with the air pump, if not you can always buy them individually. This controls how much air is passed through to the filter.
- Filter
Of course... the sponge filter!

Optional stuff includes:
- Non-Return Valve

I've attached a random diagram of how the stuff fits together. The black box is the sponge filter, the blue lines are the air line, red box is non-return valve, gold box is the adjustment valve and the green box is the air pump. Each "thing" should have a little nozzel that the air tubing is squeezed on to (it is a tight squeeze, the tighter the better).

Good luck!

Oh, thank you so much! Kaze's side is more densely planted than Echo's (Kaze on the right, Echo on the left) as he doesn't have as many cave ornaments. He has a really good habit of scratching himself up on the most gentle of things so I've made sure he only has driftwood structures as hiding places, thought the extra plants might also help compensate.

I added some java ferns, marimo moss balls and a coconut shell bridge covered in pearl moss yesterday after they ended their quarantine, seems the guys approve of them!

thanks you so much for taking the time to upload these pictures and write these instructions! They helped me out a lot!

Did you just put your filter on one side of the tank and heater on the other?
Also where did you get your divider/what is it made out of?
I was thinking about putting my filter and heater in the middle with two dividers on each side to separate my bettas.


Thanks!
