What's the plant that's taking over the entire tank here?

How did you divide the 40B tank? Are the acrylic dividers or sponge?

Oh that's pretty cool. I wonder why I haven't seen that used a lot. People try to use foam or whatever to section tanks but then the flow gets cut pretty badly. How's the mesh treating you? Are the mesh openings pretty large?

And what's that plant taking over the 10g fry tank?

The plant taking over the fry tank is peacock moss.

The dividers werent cheap, thats prolly why a lot of people go for alternatives. I glue mine down so they arent going anyway unless I get a razor blade. The mesh is pretty small. Endler fry cant get through but my rainbowfish fry can. Im sure the holes will get smaller through time as well with algae. I can still slide the mesh out though if I need to clean it, the sides are the only thing glued down.

Oh whoops, didn't see you post that before. That huge picture of the divider caught my eye haha. Any chance you'll be putting up some peacock moss for sale ?

So how's the flow through that 40B tank? Do you have a powerhead set up or something?

Lol yeah I figured that would give you a good visual of what I used I actually just posted a thread on the swap and shop last night http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sw...ck-cherry.html

The flow in the 40b wasnt what I expected. I ended up using 3 HOB AquaClear 20's for each section. I started out with a HOB 50 in the middle but wasnt enough surface movement. Then I tried to 20's on each side and the middle was still a lil stagnant. I could of used airstones but didnt want to raise my ph so I just put one in each section. Big Als sells AquaClears for cheap, I have them on all my tanks but one, which is my main and its a canister. Im more of a fan of the HOB's.

Think you'll still be selling peacock moss in a month or so? I need to set up dividers in my moss tank or all the moss will grow together :\. Stupid suction cups from ebay haven't arrived yet. Might even need to report the seller since there's no communication what so ever.

Ah, so you're still forced a filter per section. I was hoping you had a way to have a single filter for all three sections haha. Think a cansiter would work? Have the intake to the canister in the middle, and modify the output to each of the three sections? I guess a UGF would work as well. But yea, multiple HOB is what I see everyone end up doing haha.
