Divided 5 gallon.

Sarada wanted pics. I just used the report binder and crafting mesh way of making them. I also hot glue gunned the top of the divider to the rim of the tank.

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to give Anders and my planted tank to my brother or not. If I do, I'll be getting a new betta of course. But I did put him in the other side of the tank for a bit.
I have been talking the two different people about adopting bettas. One's local and the other isn't so there is always that option.

No, lol. All of them are from petco. I figure it'd be best to not do the planted tank thing in college. It can take a lot of time depending on what real plants you have.

How do you get the things that hold the divider to stay on the tank?

I just got report covers at Office Max, I believe. They weren't expensive at all. Maybe like $4 for 8 of the actual covers, then the crafting mesh I got at Walmart for $1.97 and that came with like 5 or 6 large sheets so I have plenty to make more. You can probably get the report covers at Walmart too.

These are what they look like and the plastic part just slides right off.


EDIT: Oh and the plastic mesh gives enough force that you can squeeze them in there and the tension holds them in place. The mesh may bow, I just kept trimming a little at a time to where it still is snug against the glass but doesn't bow.

And the pressure alone is enough to keep it in place in the tank?

Usually yeah, but I hot glue gunned mine to the top of the rim just to be sure and the gravel on the bottom will keep it sucure down there.

You could also use aquarium silicone if you want to silicone the whole plastic part to the sides of the tank, but I just needed a little so just used what I had.

Awesome job!
BTW I think you can just by the report binder spines from any printer that does that kind of binding like the staples copy center, for even cheaper!
