I should have mentioned that my dividers were not siliconed into the tank because I wanted them to be removable for cleaning or rearranging the tank. That's why there was a slight gap between the glass and the divider if the fish pushed hard enough on it. I didn't think they'd be able to move it, but I came home one day to find that was an incorrect assumption!

I went to the craft store again today to find a way to remedy my bettas being able to see each other through the black #7 mesh. The only thing I could find with smaller mesh was #14 Cross-Stitch Fabric at Michael's. I got the type made out of vinyl. It doesn't say non-toxic, but it does say that it's mashine-washable and it looks like it should be okay. I plan to just stitch a piece over the black #7 mesh I'm already using. The only downside is that it's white. :(

This vinyl cross-stitch fabric came in a roll. Has anyone ever used it? Is it fish-safe?

I cant remove the sides in mine without a razor blade, but I can pull the mesh out & put it back without a problem for cleaning & what not. The mesh would jsut slide out..

^^^ sorry for the very delayed replies ha. ye're very welcome. im glad this thread is helping a few ppl :) @ryansmith: yes, its safe to use. if you want to be 110% sure, just soak it in water for 48 hours and smell/taste the water. if its not smelly or has a funny taste its safe to use for your fish :)

i divided my 5 gal and i took pitluv's example to put in a jumping divder right on top of the main divider (3.5'' wide). the water level is just 1/5 inches below this barrier below. ive since cut a gap in the top cf so i can slide out the main divider when needed.

I second the motion!! ^.^ It is a wonderful sticky and I'd like to be able to find it again when I'm able to divide my own tank!
