Homemade divider? (not sure if this goes here or Habitat)

I have a 5 gallon tank and I was wondering if there was any easy way to make a divider if I wanted to get another betta.

Here is the DIY for making dividers for your tank. I used these myself and they work very nicely though they take a bit of patience to make.

You can also use the plastic mesh that is in the arts and craft section at most chain stores. I find this to be very easy to work with. One thing to watch for, make sure you have at least 1/2in above the water line or your bettas will find their way over the top and into the other sections! My King betta roughed up one of my crown tails before I caught it and changed the height of my divider/lowered the water level.

no worries, its not stickied and its hard to find unless you know what youre looking for c:



as for having the dividers sticking over the water, bettas can jump up to 3 inches so make sure you have a cover or they will jump the dividers. 1/2 inch might not be enough ^^

I had an adventurous CT that jumped my 2 and a half inch border and tore my HM up ;A;
