So, I'm thinking about picking up a ten gallon tank to split between my 3 boys.. with dividers of course, to free up space, and lower maintenance. Possibly a larger tank, depending on the price difference. Before I start buying anything, I have a few questions to those who have or have had this kind of setup before.
First of all, what's the best way to cycle the new tank? It will possibly be a while before my boys are ready to move in as 2 of them are being treated for fin rot at the moment anyway.
What filter do you recommend? Two of my guys really don't like currents much, although the third is kind of weird that way, and seems to do quite well.
I've read the link about making dividers, and it seems simple and inexpensive, do they work well? What's the best way to keep them in place?
What sort of maintenance schedule do you follow?
Any other advice or suggestions would be appreciated :)
