Mini Bow 5's

Does anyone know if they make dividers for mini bow 5's. I've been looking through various sites and cant find any. Or is that something i would have to make myself? I want to divide one and put my other male midas in there and put my female lucy on the other side. im tired of looking at them in there little bowls.

I haven't seen a 5G one with a divider, but you can make one or buy one.

Please let me know what you decide to do. I just posted a thread asking some questions about dividing a 5g. I have the mini-bow as well.

After looking around the internet, ive decided to buy the 10g divider, cut and form it to fit the mini bow. I think it would be the best way to divide the tank.

Im just worried on how the front will attach since the front is bowed out a bit which might cause small spaces along the front for my fish to get through.

Gonna take some mc guyver skills.

I'd be about the same price to get a 10g instead of a mini bow 5... :D The bigger the better!

That was my concern. The gap due to the bow. After searching the forum though, I've decided not to divide the 5g. A lot of people are suggesting that it is best to divide a 10g down to a 5g, but to divide a 5g down to a 2.5g is too small the the betta to be truly happy.

Very true. I have a 10g back home. I still need to buy everything for it, but it would be worth. 5g per betta is alot better compared to 2.5g.

Thanks to other members for their suggestions and helping me choose the better way.
