|hoa101||Which heater is that Marko? I am looking for one that fits a bit better into my own 5.5g. I have the Eheim 25w. While it works very well, it is very long.|

|@marko@||note: those pictures were taken with my phone camera, a lot of the 'dirtiness' of the water is really just grain image. ill take a pic with my canon in a few days for proof.|

been quite a while, thought id give you guys an update:

Well, you have a great tank, and it works ! I've considered a mini-canister (Like a Rapids Mini) and thought about running a DIY spraybar the whole length. The spraybar itself wouldn't be hard, getting the holes calibrated would be tough. Maybe a "reverse" spraybar for the return..? I did see a setup on a 10 using 2 AC 20s. It was neatly done, I love my ACs (I run a 50 and a 20) and they work well. On the other hand, they do push a lot of current, and they look...well, functional, lol. As this tank will on display, was hoping for an elegant look(maybe 3 Mignon 150s..?) but bottom line is price and health of the fish. Anyway, subscribed! Looking forward to reading your updates from time to time

its really uplifting to hear you 'inspired' someone.
on a 10 gallon, perhaps one of the mini canister filters would be best. you could stick the intake on one side, and outtake all the way on the other, and the water would have to pass through all the chambers. you may need to break up the current from the outtake for that one betta though.

|TeteRouge||Beautiful tank and Bettas, wish you all the best with them! You've also inspired me to build a 4 section 10g for half-moon plakats (using dark mesh instead of acrylic). I really like your filtering system, looks elegant and is obviously effective. Don't know if 3 Mignons would work for a 10, tho...getting calculator out, lol.|

|@marko@||could be made to work, but you would need to make larger holes and then cover them with mesh. cuz an adult male RCS who hung out in this tank for almost a year had no issues going from compartment to compartment. a shrimplet would certainly have no trouble.|

|Lil' Swimz$||That's a wonderful idea for breeding different species of shrimp without mixing and without multitudes of tank! I'm going to try this on my next shrimp setup.|

i took some tapemeasure and mesure how much room there was in between the glass sides. then sanded down a little. i put them in sideways so they fit in through the rim, and then turned them to be perpendicular to the front. if it doesnt go, dont force it, sand it down some more. i tried forcing one and it shatter the front glass pane and i had to go buy a new one (not to big a deal since its a cheap tank, but better to avoid this).

What was the size did you cut for DIY acrylic divider (per piece) in this 5g tank?
