Yes =) I've just been going with the names I've found on some plant sites while looking for an idea of what to get at the store. They just simply called them moss balls, but those are the ones! marimo...sounds cooler. ^^

This is not a betta tank, but shows how I divide my tanks when I need to. Dividers are a bit crooked because the lid is pushing down on them, but ignore that haha fish are non-aggressive in there.


So just using the substrate it will keep it in place??? do you think if I used ornaments(pagoda) also on each side it will help keep it in place?? I don't mind making my own divider.. just dont want to go with gluing or anything like that.. or which store bought one would you recommend for a 5gl??

It should stay essentially in place even without substrate if you cover all four edges with poster hangers or report binders. It may tilt a bit, but if you cut it right it should be rigid enough to stand on its own.

Otherwise, burying the bottom section into the substrate should give it extra stability and stop fish from getting under the bottom. Using something heavy on both sides should also help to hold it up and stop it from leaning over.

I don't use store purchased dividers so not really familiar with available brands. Plus a lot of them tend to be clear, which can cause stress if housing two males side-by-side.
