Just Finished the new Betta Condo.

Just finished up the new Betta Condo. I got tired of doing multiple water changes on multiple tanks. Between the filter the live plants and just one tank my Betta habbit duties just got a little easier. Just have to finish up the glass hinged lid and im all good.

Thanks, I made it. Purchased the glass. The dividers are PVC that i got from home depot. I cut and drilled them (what a PITA that was). The white divider for the pump/heater/filter on the far right is a cutting board from Walmart.

I actually asked that very question on this forum and the majority of people said that the clear dividers are fine. I guess it makes sense as there are no dividers in their natural habitat and somehow they manage to survive and thrive.

^My thoughts exactly, LOL.
My two males freak when they can see each other. I personally would assume it would be OK if the tank were heavily decorated but with such small spaces and bettas on both sides, they might have issues with territory..

Each tank is about 1.6 gal. I made the dividers removable so i can easily replace them with opaque plexi glass if it starts to become an issue.

does the left side get equal filtration?

Curious because I've been thinking about doing this.

Yes, the pump is located in the lower right portion.

A tube running under the gravel feeds into that little white cavity on the bottom left (you can see from the pic).

It has a bunch of holes drilled into the top so the water is very diffused and creates almost no current. Since the pump is all the way to the right the water is drawn across all 4 partitions finally to the white divider which creates the filter cavity. From there it goes down through a fine mechanical filter 1st, than a mesh box filled with a lot of bio material and finally another more coarse mechanical filters.

I pulled up the opaque side so you can see it easier.
