Hi, right now I have one make betta in his own ten gallon. I want to divide it and get one or two more bettas. Should I use the dividers made for aquariums? Or is there any way to make my own using aquarium safe materials that the bettas wouldn't be able to see through? What about buying some aquarium dividers and then making it into a moss wall? Thanks.
Google "DIY aquarium dividers"
There is a really cheap simple way to make them out of craft mesh and report binders. Many people from this site make them and have had good results.
I personally use the store bought on one tank, DIY On another. I prefer the store bought because they aren't as flimsy, but the price is outrageous.
Aquarium silicone would be a good idea to keep them in place if you decide to go the DIY route! Next time I re-do the tank with the DIY that is what I'll e doing
I made the DIY ones from craft mesh and they work well. There are different types of craft mesh, some are more rigid than others. The more rigid ones are less flimsy. They have different types of craft mesh at Jo Ann fabrics.
I did not silicone mine in place. You can also use pieces of acrylic cut to size, but you need to drill holes for airflow.
