My 5.5 gal tank progress

So, for anyone who doesn't know, I'm getting a replacement 5.5 tank after the first one came broken.

The tank is a regular glass tank with a black rim on top.

I'm planning on dividing it, and then putting Buddha on one side, And Pudge in the other.

This is the general layout of how I want it



Here aare the binders I found. The mesh will be in my hands by next week.


The rest of the supplies


And one of the two fish going in (yes, that's his new thermometer!)


Hopefully, I will be able to get the mesh sooner than next week, but it's just wishful thinking at this point since I can't find it in my Walmart or Target.

Once the tank comes in, I'm going to start preparing it. I'll only be able to enjoy it for a few weeks before I have to take it apart for the move back to college, but still, I'm excited :)

Sounds like a good plan you have there. Putting a heater in the center with the filter?

I will do that when the summer comes around again. The dorms (and my house) get super warm during the winter. And right now, Buddha is in a room with the AC going on very minimally.

I'm lucky to be in Florida because so far I don't need a heater but when the time comes I'll be upset having to spend so much for something I'll need for about 2 weeks a years when it gets cold.

The heaters are so expensive Dx

but when I absolutely NEED one, I will be putting it across the filter.

Thanks for uploading pictures like that. It's more fun to look at photos than a bunch of words.

I'm not a fan of those flat style marbles. One side is MEANT to sit on the floor, the other side is for DISPLAY.

I just like to toss gravel in and forget it.

I don't want to play underwater backgammon flipping stones because one side is MEANT be on top.

Did you check to see how much more a ADJUSTABLE flow filter is versus the basic NON-Adjustable ones are?

I actually like the marbles better than the gravel because its so much easier to clean. I really don't mind if they're upside down haha

And i honestly don't know the difference between filters. In the past, we had a filter that looked like a turkey blaster, and i ended up killing all our fish xD i tried to avoid them as much as possible, and i admit, I didn't find out the differences :/
