So, I recently posted a question about whether or not I should separate my two Betta. I quickly ran out and got a plastic mesh "screen" that I then cut down to size and stuck in my ten gallon tank to separate my adult female veiltail and my baby (gender unknown)... It was a quick job and the screen is only held up by the walls of the tank and tape. It worked, until I saw my baby Betta on the wrong side! I figured it wasn't worth it to fix it at the time, so I left the divider out for a day. Now keep in mind, I had figured it was very secure, without any holes that my Baby could slip through. Then I noticed their behavior changed, the Baby Betta was actually "picking on" the adult. Weird? So I seperated them again, same screen but I re-taped it. Baby Kim some how slipped through once more! I am going to get a better divider, but they seem to be really interested in the fish on the other side. Any suggestions? Maybe a different screen? I want them each to be happy.
PS - Typo in the title... It's meant to read "Ten Gallon Tank and Two Fish!"
