Lightbulb Project Divider: Complete!

So a few days ago I decided to add a divider to my 10 gal tank so my girls would stop pulling each others fins off!... I also ended up adding a new filter :) Now I'm just waiting to put them in the tank :D They are going to love it! Below are a few pictures.

To build the divider I just used a piece of plexiglass and drilled a bunch of holes in it. Then attached it to the tank with some clear aquarium silicone.

I found some plexiglass(26"x16") at Homedepot for $8 And a tube of silicone for $3.99.

As for the new filter I went with: Cascade Canister 500 From amazon.com for $68. It's a bit overkill for my 10gal but the flow is adjustable and it does a good job of spreading the water across the whole tank with the spray bar.

WOW! Nice job. Let us know hoe the fish react to the filter's power. Just make sure the one female's fins are sucked up in the intake!

Thanks :) And i'm going to turn the filter way down when I get the fish in the tank. So far this filter is working great and it doesn't make any noise at all!

Yeah that filter is awesome. It was really easy to set up and it came with a ton of extra parts so you can do a bunch of different set ups
