Exclamation danger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Betta dividers to me are very dangerous for your handsome bettas, I have found them to do alot of damage! This is just one of the problems I have found with them. This is my happy halfmoom (Rascal)

This is (Rascal) after putting in a divider tank, and I know he feels bad cause he acts ithis tank mate chewed his fins through the divider.
my poor baby is got his back fin hanging, i need to medicate now.

It really depends on what kind of divider you have though...not ALL dividers are bad.

I had issues with that divider to in the past sometimes its also about finding a tankmate with a more submissive attitude or more passive. I prefere the dividers that have the little holes nothing can float through.Good luck with the healing though :(

That divider is definitely different from mine. The ones I use have very small holes in it, so no nipping.
Sorry about your boy.

Yeah same here. My divider has small holes, so no way to nip.

Craft canvas dividers won't have this problem. Unfortunately people who design the dividers that they sell in stores don't seem to think about WHY the divider is being used and they usually have huge holes in them.

Thanks for the info on the dividers but I think something else might be going on, Rascals fin edges curled and fell off, and him or Leroy have not eaten in two days. I guess Ill medicate because they are my pride and joy, well all of them are. Any input would be helpful.

I have the same dividers for 5 of my tanks and I haven't had a problem. I put the plants right up against the divider and link it to the divider so they can't see each other and they can't swim right up against it. I hope he gets better.
