Divided 10g


This is my divided 10g, home to two male bettas.
Storm is an adult (left) and Squid is a baby (right).

Specs:
AquaTop CAF-25 Sponge Filter
Petco 100w Heater
Finnex Fugeray Planted+

Plants:
Ludwigia Red, Ludwigia Red Rubin, Crypts, Blue Hygro, Anubias, Salivina and a plant that I can't ID (looks like Dwarf Sag)

Will be EI ferting once I get the water parameters straight. Cycle just crashed, assuming because I have to drain and silicone the dividers in order to get rid of gaps in the sides. I had the filter running in another tank during that time, but the levels of waste must have changed.

Driftwood is coming. I've got two manzanita stumps in order. Things may change a little once they get here.

Nice. Whats the middle section for? OCD purposes, for the sponge filter?

It's just and extra buffer zone really, though I don't believe there is any way for either fish to cross.
The plan is for the blue hygro to grow tall and bushy to block the equipment from view.

Thanks! I've had this light running on my other 10g and I really like it. I think it's more medium than low light though.
