Hi everybody!!! I took advantage of Petco's $1 per gallon and got a 20 long to consolidate my Betta's! I made a Betta condo for 5 lucky guys of mine. They each have 4 gallons to themselves. I went the DIY way with homemade dividers made out of crafting mesh from Michaels Craft store for .59 cents a piece! Can't really beat that! Here are some pictures of my adventure over the weekend..
Here is the tank with the dividers and sand all in place.
Here is a shot of the tank from the front.
These are the materials I used for my DIY dividers. I used crafting mesh from Michaels and then for the edged to make it sturdy I went to Walmart in the office supplies and I got a couple packs of folder dividers. I cut the mesh to size then slid the dividers along the edge. It made it very sturdy and the inch of sand was enough to hold them in place without aquarium sealant.
Here are the 5 guy's I chose to live in the new diggs. They are floating to get acclimated :)
Just a close up.
Here is a view from the top of my tank, I put the filter in the middle of the tank in hopes it will help with water movement to the edges of the tank.
All decorations in tank are temporary other than all my live plants. I just wanted them to have cover until I can go out and get permanent decorations. I love all my new plants which include water sprite, hornwort, anubias nana, duckweed, and others that I can't name off the top of my head.
Here are a couple of my guys all happy in their new home.
On the left is Murda my combtail and on the right is Ezio my cutie DTHMPK.
Here is our white HM that we call White Boy as a nickname lol.
This is Honey Bee my yellow HM :) I couldn't get any of my 5th guy he is very shy.
Thanks for checking out my weekend Betta Condo project! Hope you all had a great holiday weekend. Now it's bedtime for me!!!
