  • STRAIGHT FROM US TO YOU: Other sellers often attempt to sell marimo through fulfillment services that keep your plants in a dark, dry box for 2-5 weeks. If it says "Sold by *** and Fulfilled by ***" under the price, that means the plants are being shipped from a fulfillment center instead of directly from the seller. All the extra time in transit all but guarantees the plants will die in the months following delivery, and is actually illegal since fulfillment services don't have nursery licenses.

How to Make a Divider for a Fish Tank

In this article you will learn how to make a simple and inexpensive divider for your aquarium using some basic office & craft supplies. It is ideal for Betta fish tanks and any aquarium where the inhabitants need to be separated.

Supplies

1. Plastic Canvas/Mesh

The plastic canvas can be purchased at most craft stores and some well known department stores. I purchase mine at Michaels. It was 47 cents(US) per sheet, made by Darice company. I purchased 2 sheets of ''Christmas Green'' measuring 10.5" x 13.5". I decided to use 2 sheets so I could have some extra stability and in hopes that it would make my bettas have a more difficult time seeing each other. They had never been in a divided tank before so I decided to take extra precautions. Darker colors also make it more difficult to see through as opposed to clear or lighter ones. It all depends on your animal's personalities whether to take extra precautions or if a lighter divider is fine. They have a large variety of colors available.

2. Slide Lock Report Covers

The Report Holders/Slide Lock Report Covers have proven hard for some people to find. I recommend calling around to local office supply stores and department stores. I happened to find mine at a CVS/pharmacy store. They came in packs of 3 in 3 different colors black, white and blue. Mine cost about 2 dollars (US) a pack. You will need at least 4, one for each side of your divider. I purchased 2 packs and used the 2 blacks where they would be seen most (the sides) and other colors for the top/bottom. You will not need the clear protective cover sheets for this project, only the slider binders.

3. Scissors (Stronger or Craft Scissors May Be Needed To Trim Report Holders)

Prepare
You will need a clear bottom to place your divider flush without any space or substrate in the way. Doing this during a substrate change would be ideal or you can pile up the gravel, sand etc. to have a clear space if you don't want to remove any. This is very important as many animals including fish can dig to the other side if you leave a space under the substrate. Also, make a removable measure mark on the outside of the tank so can place your dividers evenly. I used a dry erase maker.

Trim
I started with cutting the plastic canvas the basic dimension of the tank. It will have to be smaller but it's much easier to have to cut off a little more than to cut too much and have to try and repair or start from scratch. After you have the obvious excess cut off slide a report holder on each side. I had to trim the ends of the report holders to be placed on the top and bottom so they would fit together. Once this is done you begin the process of fitting it in the tank and removing it to make adjustments. It's not the funnest part but most important. Keep trimming off a little of the mesh at a time if necessary till it fits correctly. It should be fitted tightly and flush with no spaces on the bottom or sides but with out the mesh bowing. It's important to remember it will fit differently with or without water and substrate. Often a perfectly snug divider can become loose on top or all over once water is refilled. If you made your divider while the tank was partially full or empty with out realizing this you may need to make a new one or repair it. An easy fix for this problem is to use one of the report holders and trim it a little less than the current one on the top. This will push the side holders apart and make for a tighter fit.

Grand Total
I paid approximately 6 dollars (US) to make this divider vs 10.99+Tax at my local pet store. You may even be able to lower that price depending on where you are able to purchase your supplies.


Finishing Touches amp; Tips

1. Make sure not to fill your tank to the top of the divider so your animals can not jump to each others sides, bettas are notorious for this. Having a glass top on your fish tank will also prevent them from jumping to the other side.

2. Using aquarium safe silicone to secure the divider is a great option for an extra secure and more permanent divider. If cut correctly it should not be necessary but is still a great option. Remember you have to do this in a dry clean tank and give the silicone time to cure. I advise not trimming your plastic canvas down too much till this is done and the tank is back up.

3. The holes in the plastic canvas allow water to flow through but it's still a good idea to have air stones in compartments that might not have as much surface agitation or are further away from the filter. If you have a choice place the filter in the middle.

4. It's important to keep an eye on your animals and make sure they are getting along even with a divider. There are some bettas for example who just refuse to do well in a divided tank and will remain stressed at the presence of another betta. Even though that betta is on the other side of a divider. Always have a backup plan.

Whether you make your own or purchase one. A tank divider is a great way to make room to expand your aquatic family so long as each animal is still given plenty of space.
