Sometimes. But this one.. Is 5 months old and just began to show any signs Other than "she" was never eggy, so I assumed it might be a male if he ever did mature. And yes.IT is a HE Which means I need to move him ASAP because he is in a divided tank with a female... I don't like dividing tanks for one male and one female.

For a while during my rescues I used 2 dollar washbins, approximately 2-3 gallons, with syran-wrap overtop. Humid, warm, safe :) and plus since they were white it made it easy to clean xD
I do that too with storage bins but I kinda don't like them because they have the frosted plastic and I like to be able to clearly see the fish :P

I have had a 3 way divided 10G with a young female in the middle. I never had any issues with her being in there. The only problem was when I didn't replace the divider properly after a 100% cleaning (I did not have a filter for it at the time) and I found the female hiding and the male with some missing fins. Although I have heard some people say they souldnt be in the same tank due to the female getting egg bound.

Around here they do not sell dividers for 10 gallons and at other stores have yet to see DIY supplies.

Really?! Wow. I used coroplast for a while there. Wasn't so bad after algae took it over and made it half decent looking otherwise I would've used acrylic and aquarium silicone.
