Talking New Jarring Idea

Ok so I thought of this last night. A long, short tank, that goes farther back to provide more room, split into several sections using those DIY dividers. One compartment would be the size of a small (2-5 gallon) tank and hold the heater and filter. The filter would be bigger than reccomeneded for the tank size to provide clean water, but since it would be in a bigger compartment it wouldn't disrupt the males.

Lol, I was actually just thinking over something very similar about an hour ago :P I'm guessing a lot of people have come to the conclusion that this would be a better fit for the fish

Talking 6 in 1- long tank

I just set one of these up the other day...working out pretty good..

Just added a filter, and am slowly working out the kinks...

I mainly only use it for hospital or bad girls lol, as I dont like to put anyone in here who doesn't need to be..a little sparse...but its good for recovering fish..wouldn't recommend fish with an illness or sikness as it will transfer in the water to other sections in the tank...

Wow BettaBoy that looks cool. If I ever get fry I'll probably do something similar to this method.

If you got smaller baskets then you could fit more for males :) My thinking now is to do what Bettaboy has and just leave the sisters swimming in between the compartments.

Yeah I saw the idea for jarring where you float the jars in a big tank and the females swim around loose. Baskets would work really well if you could get them cheap.

I just wanted to share something new about my long tank...

Just did a major overhaul, as the maintenance wasn't working for my set up.

I ended up taking out the baskets, as they were big (ur right mr.v) I took 8, 1.5ltr water bottles i had been saving and cut them in half and then cut a hole in each one, then cut a vent hole in each bottle to let water pass through.
To prevent the betta from leaving I wrapped a mesh around the bottle to cover the hole. This way for clanin I can take the bottle out, and water drains out 90%, with the mesh holding the betta in, and small amount of water still in the bottle.

I that way you can place the bottle in a holding jar, slide the mesh up so betta can leave then clean the bottle quic and easy then replace. I will post some pics in a bit.

Took a while to make, but it was cheap and used stuff aorund the condo.. Then the male or femals can still swim around the bottles..and air and warm water can get in through the screen.

I think this should work a little better than the baskets...
