Split Cube

Welcome to my newest project: A divided Biocube 8. My intention is to have my two male bettas in one tank by dividing the tank with craft mesh and covering the top of the display area so the bettas cannot jump between the two halves. So far I've siliconed in the my divider and have fitted the top to the display. More to come as I aquascape and fill the tank.

Closed Tank



Divided tank



Tank with mesh lid over display area



Let me know what you think. I know my idea is pretty bold and I will need to be cautious at all time having these two fish in close proximity to each other.

Oh I like it! Bet the boys will too. In my experience they dont really notice the other with black canvas, as they would with white. Not sure why.

Thanks for the comments! A moss wall you say? I have not attempted one of those but it does sound interesting!

Personally I wouod change that divider from black to almost invisible fishing line ( diy plastic frame with lots of small drilled holes and fishing line) and I'd plant there a java moss to make a moss wall.
That black colour will be visible for a long time and it will make your tank smaller than it is.

Would you happen to have a link to the type of divider you'd like me to construct?
