  5. Help Divided Tank Filter

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I was thinking about changing my 10 gallon divided tank into a 20 gallon, divided into 4 sections. But I have no clue what filter or what filter should I make. A sponge filter in each section with one air pump for each? What kind of filter do you recommend that can cover a 20 gallon divided tank?

    Planted Betta Tanks
    Soo I've been thinking recently about moving my betta from his current 5 gallon tank to a 10 gallon in a couple of months. I've had the tank sitting around with nothing in it because I initially used it for my goldfish until they outgrew it. If I set up the 10 gallon I definitely want to use...
