New Divided Betta Tank

I just finished dividing my ten gallon tank for my bettas :) Right now there are only two fish, but three spaces- I hope to get a halfmoon someday.

This is a pretty big upgrade for my fish- Delfino has three times the space of his old tank, and Commander's space has doubled.

I lowered the water level to discourage jumping, but that made the filter's current so strong. I took an extra piece of plastic mesh and put it over the outflow- Delfino is much happier now.

Very nice. I'll bet they're loving all that room. Congratulations on a good job!

Thank you! I'm usually not very good with things that involve measuring so I was happy that I could do this :)

My bettas also have heated water for the first time and they seem to be loving it.

They are! :D

I used this guide: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/d...ividers-21866/

Making them was really easy! The only hitch in my entire project was the tank itself- the first time I tried to set up, it mysteriously sprung a leak -.- We're doing well now though :)

I am so happy I did this now! My veil tail, Commander, is working on a bubble nest! He has never made one before until now!

He probably found out I wanted to move him to the middle section and lnew that I would feel too guilty to do it if he had a bubble nest, lol.

I ordered a boy from Chard that will hopefully move in soon :)
