    Betta Fish Care
    Hello, I just came home with my newest, and my last is in a 2.5 gallon, so I bought a 20 long and plan on dividing it into 3, as I have one in a 10 gallon as well, so I will replace the 10 with the 20 and everyone should be happy. Questions are: What is your favorite divider? What works...
  2. Sharing DIY - Coroplast, Hot Glue, Window Screen

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So when I went to my local Home Depot to look for acrylic/lexan/etc I was gleefully surprised to find they were carrying coroplast! Coroplast is basically polypropylene plastic with a structure like corrugated cardboard. Polypropylene itself is also a food safe material and is used for...
  3. How would you evenly filter a 10 gallon tank divided into 3?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    *I'd like to apologize for many such a long post but if you do read it all, it's appreciated!* My three male bettas are currently in their own little homes but I wouldn't call them tanks, as they aren't properly a good tank. My CrownTail Male is in a flower vase that's about a gallon. My...

  6. Two Bettas and Divider Emergency

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi! I have just purchased a divided tank with a heater and filter. I got two bettas, a male, Sebastian, and a female, Popsicle. Yesterday, Popsicle managed to slip through the space between the wall and the divider to be with Sebastian, who has not even built a bubble nest for breeding yet...

    Planted Betta Tanks
    I've just about fallen in love with the way Christmas Moss looks. I'm getting ready to set up a planted 10 gallon split tank and I wanted to look into the plants I'd want to put in the tanks before bothering to buy anything or get anything set up. (Mostly because I'm impatient about getting it...
  8. Is A Tank Divider Ok For Bettas?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    So I have a 10 gallon tank, and I was wanting to house another betta in it. Would a divider be ok, or would it stress the betta's out because they can still see each other? I feel like 10 gallons is a little to big for my old betta (3 years old) but the only tank I have is a 13" x 7.5" x 8.5"...
  9. Tank dividers

    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?
  10. Dividing a 20g Tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I decided to acquire and divide a 20 gallon tank in order to properly house my 3 male bettas, because taking care of their individual tanks is really becoming a pain. This will provide each of them with more overall space, and help me retain my sanity, plus be more compact for when I move into...

    So today I found the old fish tank my parents and I had from when I was little. My mom thinks it's like 20-25 gallons. and I'd like to put a divider up (probably going to do a mesh). It's plastic and quite large. I hope Humphrey and Mojo like it, I also found two heaters and a filter (which...
  12. Divided Tank Question

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    From reading on here, it looks like a good amount of people have divided theyre tanks in order to house multiple bettas. I was wondering though where people got their dividers, and if there was any brands or types that you recommend/or dont recommend. Also if you have any good links as to how...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Could you tell me what you made yours out of? If you made it, of course. I know some tanks come with them. I just got a six gallon from a second hand shop and plan to transfer two of my bettas (both males, though one is way younger). Could you also give me advice on what to do? I'm cycling water...
  14. Divider?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I'm going to buy some 5 gallon tanks soon and to hold all of my bettas until my next pay check, I want to divide them. I can't seem to find any dividers for anything less than a 35 gallon tank, so any tips on where I could find them or even how could I make them?
  15. 29 gallon Questions

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Okay so I am going to move all six of my fish to a divided 29 gallon! We already have the tank and it has its own stand and everything and it would fit perfectly in my room. 1. I can divide 29 gallons into six right? Or would that look silly? I have a shelf dedicated to my fish, and I think...

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello Everyone. I am proud owner of 3 Betta fish. 2 girls we think (Chilli & Lilli) and 1 boy (Sushi). We are having a hard time figuring out if Chilli is a boy or girl even though the fish store owner said she was a girl (she flares a lot at Sushi). At first we had Sushi in a 1 gallon bowl and...
