That's an awesome setup... Where you can get dividers? I'm thinking about redoing my 20 gallon and adding an area of sand but would need to separate it from the eco-complete that is already there.

It's just poster board that I taped to the sides of the tank. Once the substrate is poured on both sides, I just peel the tape and pull the poster board out of the aquarium. The sand and the Aquasoil will stay separate.
