40 Breeder low light tank


I am setting up a 40 Breeder low light tank. I plan to divide the tank in the middle with poret foam, (unless that bad idea)

I was going to put HOB filter on each side, along with some sponge filters. Will this setup work?

Thanks

The reason to divide it is because I thought I could go with different options. In regards to the HOB and sponge filters, it just extra stuff I have sitting around. This not my primary tank. My main tank is 180 high tech, but I wanted to try out a tank low tech and have several fish options.

Just wondering if good or bad idea using both type of filters and split the tank as well.

I'm sure the setup will work, but it might not be terribly attractive to have a foam block down the middle of the tank. Is your goal to have several incompatible species in the same tank?

The tank is in my laundry room, it really just a tank to play with. My main tank is 180 high tech. Well maybe some incompatible species or fry on one side of it.


Would you run HOB and sponge filters or maybe just HOB with pre filter?

Thanks
