Overstocking a cichlid tank is a common practice to help disperse aggression - it helps make sure not just one or two guys are getting picked on. You should see my 75 gal. cichlid tank - it would make you CRINGE! Plenty of filtration & water changes and it's all good, though.

"Any insight on how to go about doing this (type of sponge, how to secure it, etc.)? "

Here is a pic of how I do it.

AquaClear or Imagine sponges/foam are the brands I happen to use & should be available at any LFS.

Hope that helps! :)

Yeah, but the library tank is SERIOUSLY overstocked. As in, the fish can't see more than a few inches infront of them, because of a fish for a fake plant. :/ it's supre sad!

Here are some new ones of my tank :3 I know its not much right now, kinda bare. But Adamu seems to like it, and look! I removed a few of the suction cub plants and separated to have them float on top, and what do I come back to 20 minutes later? Adamu moved them to the other side of the tank, and has made a nice Bubble Nest :3

I'm going to be redesigning his tank sooner or later as soon as I have money. Which them should I go for? Tokyo-vibe or African-Savannah? I'm feeling more Tokyo myself :P Anyway here are some pics!


(Here's the tank, note how small Adamu is compared to the 5.5 gallons. Is he still a baby? :/)


(BUBBLE NEST FTW! And made in only 20 minutes if I might add in, pretty good for his first one ;)


(Is he a Half-moon or a Delta? I'm pretty sure the cup said an HM but he kinda looks like a delta.....)


(Get dat camera up out my face foo! Stop takin pics of my bubble nest too!)
Hint. Adamu hates the camera.

Anyway there are the pics of the tank, hopefully by sometime next week I'll have it decorated and it'll look a bit more worthy to be in the same thread of some of these other amazing tanks. BTW is a 5.5 gallon to small to divide if I ever got another Betta? I don't want to make Adamu uncomfortable.

How is it I have not posted my tanks here? Not even once?

This is my 3 gallon kritter keeper, housing Lavian.


And this is what my 10 gallon community looked like about 2 weeks ago. It has changed since then, however. This houses Berry, 4 glowlight tetras, and 4 albino corys.

No, it's actually fine to divide a 5.5 gallon tank. Each betta would get ca. 2.5 gallon, that's the minimum amount of water for a betta to live happy and healthy.

Ps. The things on the front of the new 14g are two rocks that were boiled, and the leafy thing in the kritter keeper is a betta hammock. They really work!!

Just got him this morning & he is settling in VERY well in his 5 gal., heated, filtered, planted tank. Introducing Herman! (Not the best pics in the world, but you get the idea.)
