Could I get away with dividing Tian-Tian's 2.5 gal. tank in half?
I already tried it a few times... Tian-Tian appeared a bit disgruntled about the decrease in space but Taco seemed fine with it.
I am heading back to college fairly soon again. Both Tian-Tian and Taco are coming with me. I really don't want to haul two whole tanks with me to the Almighty Land of College (although Taco's tank would come with me anyway as a quarantine tank). Tian-Tian was kept in a 1.5 gal tank when I first brought him home...
I have been meaning to divide a 5 gallon with my boys from the beginning, but I can't find a good, rectangle tank anywhere! (or at least anywhere where the price is reasonable, lol).
I found a 5.5 gallon tank, but my dorm is VERY STRICT about having exactly 5 gallons MAXIMUM in your dorm room (trust me, I've checked with them and they had a cow over it).
So! Tian-Tian is in the 2.5 gallon tank and Taco has his own 1.5 tank. They're both uncycled. I keep up with my water changes very well (and I have healthy, happy fish to prove it). I considered a filter, but I'm not experienced with the demands of a cycled tank.
Here's my tanks as they are now (Tian-Tian is on the right).
Help? Suggestions? Donations of a 5 gal., rectangular tank?
