If you wanted too, you could take that divider material and cut a smaller piece. Then silicone a plastic report slider half way on the material and place it on the top of the divider in your tank. I did this with mine, no jumpers :)

Toxi86 (the wife):

I'd thought about doing that myself. But as it stands with the dividers, they can't possibly jump if the lid is on. We've got everything flush and closed tight to avoid any accidents.

Though that is an excellent point and something we'll be dealing with when we find the permanent top solution. For now, this will do and I'll have to keep up with water levels. ^^

And yes!! I love those Grecian ornaments! I'm thinking of doing a full theme one to one with our fish. Once we get the second 10 gal and divide it up (so all six males will be home and happier) we'll really go to town with the decorations. Plus, more plants.

Although, anyone know of a good place to purchase silk plants for the tanks? I know it's better to put live plants but until I've done more research and practices with a few set ups, I want to stick with fakes (not plastic leaves though)

Nice tank.

I think though, that the plants lined with white are white ribbon plants, which are not aquatic :( they are sold that way though, which is too bad.

If thats what they are, take care to remove them.
They will rot and make the tank gross!

I moved Royal into a 1/2 gallon (temporarily!) and Silver gets the whole 2.5 gallon. Hopefully I'll get enough money to buy a gallon tank for Kiwi, and a 2.5 gallon tank for Royal. :)

Thanks! Yeah, the tank came with a plastic "fish guard" that was supposed to serve that purpose, but the holes in it were big enough that he could probably easily get through if he wanted. Not sure why they didn't design that piece as more of a mesh to begin with...

Isn't it cute? And Al just loves it. It's one of his favorite places to hang out.

Ill keep that in mind! They have been doing ok so far, but if they start rotting away on me I will move them to my terrarium.

How long would you let an aquarium run before putting fish in it?
We were thinking 3 days but now i am curious if i can't put them in their royal estate a bit sooner :)

3 days is fine, but it won't cycle without an ammonia source. Just letting it run will allow it to settle physically, but not chemically.
