But you tried and gave it your best shot and did so with the best intentions so you shouldn't be too hard on yourself.

If it were just the mesh that was problematic, would you consider replacing it and keeping the tank? Or maybe some of the products you used just needed some time to "settle". Really sorry about your troubles, though. :<

Yea, what Kittles said.

Maybe you should try it again but go with the place mat idea that one person here on the forum had (I forget her name)

It probably wasn't the binder backs because those are used all the time for dividers.

good luck with the decision you make,i hope you're
able to get money back on the tank if you decide to get rid of it,
it's just that tank though right ? you're not getting
rid of all your fish are you ?

UPDATE!

ye probably followed the tragic downfall of my 1st try at the divided. well, now, try #2! (with more brains this time lol) i ordered the crafting mesh ye all use for ye're dividers online! not cheap, but i couldnt get it anywhere else!
i soaked a spare lil part in water for days to see if it would disolve like the previous mesh. BUT it DIDNT! its perfect! no smell, no color. niente nada! so i filled my tank again!

I also trashed the old back gravel caus it looked too much like funeral! and got natural smaller gravel!

for the "drip system" i got aquarium hosing. specifically for fish. just to be safe. started cysling yesterday

current set-up: a bit messy lol


divider;




and draco's newest bubble nest its really perfect!!!


edit; more good news; i ordered in new bettas for wedenesday! from singapore!!!!! halfmoon and crowntail males and double tail females
