Just made my boys a new home!
Here is a break down of costs and materials notice how thrifty/ cheap I am lol
Tank 20 Long: 32$ on sale
Heater 25-50 gal: already had
Pump: $12 on sale had to spend 50 cents on a extension though
Filter 30 gal external: already had
Dividers: 24$ for a acrylic sheet I also broke a few and had to buy more
Acrylic drill bit: 8$
Tubing: 3$ for 4 feet
Sticky feet: 10$
Basically I made my own dividers and used those little rubber feet to hold them in place so my dividers are removable if I want. The holes on the dividers keep the water flowing so I have no dead zones and keep the water on the surface still so they can build their little nests. The only problem I have had is they like to jump dividers during feeding gah!
the only thing I may work on is dividing the outflow from the pump because I have been finding a few dead spots if the outflow isnt angled just right. And here are pictures...
