I have a 20 gallon long tank which i have decided to divide and get ready for the best lookers once they get older (3 week old fry right now) I will be using the DIY way to divide the tank by using plastic mesh sold at craft stores so my 1st question is how many times could i divide the tank ?
For filtration im going to use a Marineland Penguin power sponge filter rated 170gph. I was thinking of putting the powerhead/sponge on one side of the tank and attaching plastic tubing to the outlet which would dump the water out on the opposite side of the tank. My 2nd question is would this work ? Would the powerhead be strong enough to push the water thru the tubing to the other side ? My plan was to place a heater in the middle of the tank.
Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
