Atm my 10g where they are staying is a planted community, and I really like the idea of getting a few long nice pieces of driftwood and go plant crazy with a bigger tank but I don't know how the sides with the boys would look. I've seen some divided tanks that look really neat, I might experiment with plexiglass with holes drilled in it, and maybe a java moss wall, but it would defeat the purpose of the boys being able to see the girls from time to time.

I have to agree with Mizzle if you care about looks.

I think I am going to, its going to be in our front room above our fireplace so I am considering what people will think of it when they see it, but I think it will look fine if I use plexiglass and java moss as a decoration for the glass.

Tryin to find some pics of people who have done 20 gallon divided tanks. I have seen a few 20's divided 4 ways for males, but not m/f.

Are divided tanks harder to clean/vacuum?

Uh a little in my opinion, because if you clean the gravel you have to take out the vaccum for each section, or just take out the dividers. I normally do only water changes most of the time, because my boys don't have a lot of "gunk" that comes out of the gravel anyway. But when I do clean the gravel I just take out the dividers and replace them when I'm done :) Here is my 29 when I had a male on each end and a 5 girl sorority in the middle.

Oh that is beautiful. I think with a 20 long I'd give each boy about 4 gallons on the ends, and 12 in the middle for the girls and aquascaping.. Plus 12 gallons in the middle would give me room for some nice driftwood :D I LOVE that piece you have.

Sadly it won't be til September that we'll be actually moving, but I can certainly plan :D

I am thinking of changing my substrate, its mixed black and white sand atm, I'm thinking if I go divided to have the end divides have different colors like white on the ends, we'll have to see. Lots of shopping around to do before I actually get the move. :D
