oh dear, I'm scared now because I'm doing a divider in a 5.5 gallon o.o

What did you use for it?

they do sell dividers for various sized tanks at pet stores, but they're clear, so the fish can see each other. 8U mine's used for a tank lid, rather than a divider. i'm sorry this happened, though. ;n;

Yiiikes! Glad no one was injured. I've never done one, so I'm no help. I've thought about dividing my 5.5 so I can get Bella out of her 1g, but I think I'll wait till I have the money for another small tank. sigh

Same, I already Madr mine, it's in my tank. Teeney is on her side & Tiny is in QT for another week & a half... Teeney has made no attempt to get to the other side, I actually cut a piece and used plastic paper clips and clipped it on the divider so it's extended above & nobody can jump over.

the side opened up...i guess it wasn't springy enough to stay tight... after 24 hours crimson slipped through :/ i thought it would stay tight bec the lid was holding it when it was down... i was wrong... guess ill leave it to the professionals next time... anyone know of any good dividers... idc if its clear... ill just put plants all over the divider and make the visibility hard... as long as it works and this wont happen again
