    DefaultTank Divider for Bettas

    Has anybody ever made a divider for a betta tank?
    I have an empty 10 gallon tank and would like to get 2 male bettas. I need ideas on how to go about making and installing a divider.

    kaisa, gave me an excellent idea, easy and cheap.
    You get some plastic mesh from stores like Michaels. They have variety of colours, so that is nice
    They you get some "slide grip report covers", Staples and some dollarstores have them. You cut them and the mesh and just slide the mesh inside. Takes 5 min and cost a bit over a dollar I am very happy (thanks a lot, kaisa!)

    Great idea and it does sound really simple. But how did you attach it to the tank so that it won't move?

    My friend bettagirl did this as well she used silicone to seal the slide grip report covers to the tank it would have to be silicone that is aquarium safe I am sure some of the local fish stores carry it

    You can use silicone if you like, but if you are like me, that doesn't want it permenent, it stays like that pretty well. I guess if you cut it right there is no way to move it
    I have mine for 10 days now, works like charm Especially if you have gravel on the bottom. I guess you can use cups too. But I personally don't think you need anything else than the slide covers

    Thanks everybody. I'll make a trip up to Michael's today and get some supplies! We'll see how my non-existing talent for crafts works out

    here's the photos I sent to InfraredDream of how it should look when it's all done

    if you cut the spines properly so that they make a tight fit then you won't have any problems with it moving around

    Kaisa, that's a very well-constructed tank divider.

    For those who aren't so handy, tank dividers can be purchased from aquarium suppliers. You can find an example at Aquarium Supplies, Cheap Dog Supplies, Fish Supplies, Best Cat Toys if you type "tank divider" into the search box. The ten gallon divider is $19.99.
