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.
awesome.. thanks!
them being clear was my major issue in the first place.

I'll try doing your method.. =) I believe I have a coupon to my local craft store and i'm positive they have all the items I'll need. =P so win/win

Finally made the divider and started the hammocks, though I'll need suction cups, lol. Just using plastic mesh and fishing line for the hammocks, and only mesh and poster borders for the divider.

Here's Phy's current home until the 10g is ready


And here's the 10g split. Phy will be on the right (with his t-rex skull cave), and the new halfmoon on the left.


There will be live plants and a nerite snail to each side, so I may take some more of the silk plants out so it's not too crowded.

I'm using long curly bamboo canes and lucky bamboo, as they are the only semi-aquatic plant around here. Even if they don't do too terribly much, I think they look neat and I've been careful to keep leaves above water and put the roots in containers with substrate covering them. The bamboo's more of an experiment for now and so far so good.

I was actually up late one night weeks ago just browsing and saw the idea. I did see you mention it to someone else in another thread too. It may have even been your thread, I can't remember it was like 3 in the morning and I was super stressing over Phy. I really like the idea of it. =) Bamboo's the only plant I've ever been able to keep xD
