I'll have to post mine later, I rigged up a divider so they cannot see each other, but still allows for the flow of water.

That is very good. Some day I want to build a tank that is a Rice Paddy.

hi all.. what do you mean by "not filtered evenly?" Usually a filter and/or heater is on one side of the tank or the other anyway - divider or not.

My divider is mesh plastic with tons of tiny holes, similar to the triangular shaped setup above (nice setup by the way!). So water gets thru it.. I guess I'm not understanding how the divider affects filtration or heat.

Some dividers do not allow water to flow through. Which changes eachsides conditions.

No the Bettas can not fit through our dividers. The slits are too small and it's only the determined shrimp that squeeze through, and generally they are quite small. Our Bettas have lots of places to hide. With plants and a shelter that has many Entrance holes.

We just did some cleaning tonight on the tanks and the verdict is out for five missing ghost shrimps. Lol we know three were eaten as there was someone body left. Thankfully they are inexpensive, as we are going to go replace them in a few days!

The small ones are male.

How do you tell male from female?

Personal Experience: Not Good!
I tried this twice.
Once with the Cowardly Dude and a lavender plakat (RIP)
The Cowardly Dude did not fare well at all, and I don't think that the nasty plakat was all that at peace with being able to see the stranger next door, either.
The other was with my Blue DevilFish and a plakat that was unfortunately mislabeled as a female wild type. He jumped the glass, and BDF smashed him. And that was when I was finally able to see that, lo, he had no egg spot. *sigh*
So, anyway, that quaint, space-saving idea has popped. All the boys must live alone. Although, I am toying with the idea of a sorority... We'll see how that crazy train plays out in my head...

For Shrimp?

The Females tend to be much larger than the males.
