  1. DIY Divided Tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories

  2. Getting a new tank!!

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So I'm getting a new, 55 gallon, tank that I plan on dividing down the center. Frosted glass so they can't see each other of course lol. One side for each Betta since my 'one tank per room' idea isn't going well. I got the tank for free though which is a mega plus! I haven't had a tank this...

    I really hope that I am posting this right, this is my first post on a site like this. So currently I have 3 male betta fish in individual two gallon tanks (I now know that that is on the small side which is why I want bigger). I got a 10 gallon tank for Christmas. I plan to divide it 3 ways so...
  5. Divided Betta Tank

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello, I have had a 5.5 gal divided tank for my two bettas for about a year now. I have never had a problem before with my divided tank because while the divider was a clear mesh, the fish could only really see each others shadows.. My old divider became completely infested with algae so I had...
  6. Can I divide a 5 gallon?

    Betta Fish Care
    I have a 5 gallon tank and I would love to get another betta! I don't have too much room for another tank with a fish so I was wondering if I could divide my 5 gallon? Or would that be too small for the fish?
  7. Help! Film on top of aquarium water?!

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey, so I set up a 60 gallon tank last week. I am going to be housing 5 male bettas in it so I divided it with acrylic panels that I had my dad drill holes in. I used an established filter and so I moved my first boy in that night. I started noticing a few days ago that there is a film on top of...

    Betta Pictures
    I have a 5g cube set up with an azoo palm filter, plants, and divider almost ready for another fish to go in to live with my crowntail Lil Buddy.

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey guys. I'm about to divide my betta so I can rescue another betta, but I'm curious to hear what every body recommends for dividers. I was thinking the craft mesh that you can make tunnels out of becuase I have a bunch in my house. Anybody have recommendations?

    I'm about to upgrade 2 of my guys from a 5 gallon and a 1.5 gallon to a divided 10 gallon. I've never had a divided tank before so I have some questions. I'll be making a DIY divider with craft mesh and report cover spines attached to the tank walls with aquarium sealant. Here are my...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have one betta in my 10 gallon, and I am planning on dividing it soon and finding him a neighbor. I've been interested in female bettas for a while now, and I always feel sad they are so unpopular. I see a lot of cute ones lately at my LFS and I'd really like to take one home. My question...

    Betta Pictures
    Usually the two in my divided 10g hide as soon as they see the camera come out, but today they were behaving :) They're so gorgeous, so I'm glad I finally got some decent photos of them. Their flamboyant finnage has actually got them the nickname "the glamor twins" around my house :) And they...

    I have a divided 10 gallon tank with a male betta on one side and a female betta on the other side. I also have a 55 gallon community tank where I have 7 females. It's been difficult to keep the sorority fairly balanced in the big tank because I was advised that there needs to be more females in...
  17. Divided tank?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I'm relatively new to the fish keeping world, but so far so good with Tesla, who I've had for just about 2 months now. I'm starting to think about getting more fish, but I can't afford a bunch of expensive individual tanks and I really don't like the bow style tanks which seem to be the cheapest...

  20. Fish and Felines

    I own cats and fish. It's just kinda my thing. I have four bettas - two males, an adult female, and a 'baby betta' who is also (I'm almost positive) female. The males, Arthur and Merlin, are in a divided 20 gallon with a small colony of ghost shrimp and 3 ivory mystery snails. The females...
