Question Is this a good divider?

hi i was wondering if anyone has had experience with this divider on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Penn-Plax%C2%A..._petsupplies_1

and is it adjustable? cause it looks like u can cut it or something.

it seems to be based on the reviews but its quite expensive. You could make a few with that price+shipping.... You got a walmart and michaels where you live? Or something equivalent... I made 2 for under $6

i live in Australia so there are no walmarts or big pet stores like in America, but my LPS doesn't have any type of custom glass plastic or material dividers.

In the past I have made partitions from Lexan (perspex)... Lexan is good because you can cut and drill it with normal hand tools.. As long as the lexan and the tools you cut it with are free from oil band other contaminents, then there should not be any issues...

I have also used glass from old, leaky fish tanks for partitions..

I once bought a plastic peg basket like the one pictured below, and used the plastic mesh section as a tank partition on a smaller tank..


Go into Bunnings and have a walk around and see what you can find..

ok well then all you need to do is go to a store where they sell basic school supplies for the slide binders and then a craft store for the mesh.... Here's the site I used to make mine. It also shows pics so you now exactly what I'm talking about...

Thankyou for the link..

I had not considered this method, and I might try it out in my 15 gal, rather than the glass one that it has now.
