I could probably remove all the males once they're bigger and keep the females all together with the heater and filter when they're older. I think it's fine if the babies mingle when they're older, just not the males.

Will the babies be able to slip through the holes in the dividers? Thats would be my biggest concern.... maybe you could wrap them in nylon.

Thanks. Now all I need is panty hose, and some more stuff to make dividers. I don't need to worry about the dividers going very high right? Any body have any ways they make large dividers? I make them with the whole DIY thread we toss around to everyone. But now I need help making them for a 50 gallon,and to keep them in place with no gravel. Any suggestions?

Yay vikki! you're breeding again, thats great. I would suggest not to use the filter because even my biggest gold fish (about 7 in.) get pushed down to the bottom. be sure to post pics of the incredbily smart sytem you and andikin made, it should work great! :) (:

I think it's funny that merlin is on double duty. but anyway good luck, and I hope you win the auction! = ]

The filter will be okay because it will be in the middle where neither batches of fry can get it. It should be fine.
Thanks!

When I built my divider that was larger than a sheet of plastic craft canvas I just used fishing line to sew two pieces together. Make sure the edges overlap a bit so that it isn't floppy. As for support, you can always silicone them to the tank. If you ever need to remove them the silicone can always be scraped off. Hope this helps.
