Cheers CJay!!

Goomba - the dividers are made of seperate upright lengths of glass attached to the cross-members. as the dividers are made of a number of seperate peices, there are gaps between these pieces allowing the water to flow from the left hand side of the tank as u see it in the pic above, to the right hand side. if u look at the 2nd, 3rd and 4th pics in particular you can see the gaps between the pieces of glass.

unfortunately the blue CT we got at the weekend has died today.

he was alive this morning following his water change last nite. we had introduced an airline to the tank to increase oxygen, i believe i read on here that can help a little, and he was been treated for the finrot. unfortunately it just seemed to be so aggressive that it was too much within a matter of days.

such a shame as he was a gorgeous blue colour.

rest of the boys are doing grand and all seem to be enjoying their new home and tormenting one another through the glass lol!

Sorry to hear about the crowntail, sometimes there is nothing you can do to save them.
Hopefully you'll find another CT to replace hin soon.

cheers mand! yeah i guess thats just the way it goes sometimes.

once i get the other one currently in quarantine into the main tank i'll set about finding a new fish, my brother's shop got a batch in yesterday but were all VTs, i dunno what the craic is here with not being able to get CTs!!!! really annoying! i'll probably end up looking for a nice VT coz i dont wana be waiting around for months on end to finish populating the tank.

Nice tank for sure man. Your tank is so freaky cool, so did your brother use those sealant for fish tanks at walmart to clue the divider to the glass?

@ iheartmybettas - thanks. its 36 inches long by 8 inches deep by 11.5 inches tall, meaning that each cell is 6" by 8" by 11.5" which is plenty of room for them, the 4 boys in there already are very happy in their new home!

i cant promise i can answer your questions, but i will forward them to my brother who built it and try to get answers for you. drop me them in a PM sure when the time comes.

@Lee - i live in NI man, we dont have walmart here. my bro works in a tropical fish shop, i believe he used fish-safe sealant yes, both clear and black. the dividers are made of strips of glass, so the tank is 100% glass, even the handles on the cover glass are glass. It took a few days to dry/cure, but so far so good.
