20g Divided

I've been working on this tank for a good week and it's finally coming together. Still needs work, but so far I'm liking it. Also, I was wondering if I really need to put a filter in it. I would prefer not to because I feel the current will be annoying to the betta in that section. Though I suppose I could put a bunch of plants near it to break up the movement. Any input is awesome. Also, ignore the floating plants in the middle sections, they're just there until I can attach them to something. :)

It's looking awesome. If you are gonna skip the filter you will probably wanna plant heavier because I doubt you will want to do constant considerable water changes. You could try to set up some kind of PVC drip system? Or a baffle?

I'll definitly be adding a lot more plants. I'll probably go ahead and put the filter in while there's no one in that section and see if I can baffle it.

That's a great tank! Most people wouldn't take the time or work to do that (Well, than again, most of the people on this forum are Betta fanatics...) I can't wait to see all the Bettas in there!

Thanks everyone! Yeah it does take some time to get everything set up, but I enjoy setting up a new tank, especially aquascaping. I'll be at my LFS and Petsmart multiple times a week to look for different things that I think will work in my tank. :)

I can't wait to see it fully planted, it's going to be awesome. I'm sure you could baffle the filter enough for it to work

Yeah I'm using a filter in my divided 10 gallon and the flow doesn't bother the fish in that section he just can't make bubble nests so I'm going to be baffling with a sponge instead of a water bottle as soon as I can get one.

Yeah I'll probably baffle mine with a sponge, though I may see if I can put a lot of plants around it to act as a natural baffle.

Random question for everyone, I noticed that my snails seem to like hanging out on my marimo ball. The first night it was in the tank, the bigger of the two snails made a beeline for it and just sat on top of it. Are they eating it or no? Granted they are small and I don't think they'll be able to consume much of it, I was just wondering.
