My question is - what the heck is a tank divider?
And where do I get one?
Can I use something made of net so that the filter will still work properly?
Will being able to see each other that well drive them crazy?
Thanks for any help!
not sure where you buy them prob a pet shop. you can MAKE them but im not too familiar with that folder way of making it ive heard about. I use gutter guard (plastic mesh put over gutters to stop leaves and stuff getting into the water)
the mesh dividers can be purchased and mesh means the water WILL flow through. the "folder" way the water wont flow.if you have a person whos handy with a drill you could always buy perspex and drill a whole lot of holes into it.
Some males freak constantly about constantly seeing another male, but a male | female will still flare.
urgh this ever comes out right lol
my males are in a 10 bay divided tank, they spend about 30 minuts a day flaring at each other, they flare when the lights come on, go off, at feeding time and a few times through the day but if they FLARE too much then you could always put plants there to cover the divider
