I want to get someone a divided tank for Christmas and can’t find the one i was looking at in store online. It had a waterfall into one side with a diagonal built in divider. One side was 2.4 and the other 1.8 any ideas? Or other 5G divided tanks?

I'm actually in the same boat. I'd like something divided three ways if possible and with minimal framing -and- I don't want the water in each to be siloed. Probably looking at a custom build unless there are similar crazies out there like me but who managed to build up a business around their eccentricities.

I currently have two 2.5s divided with store-bought dividers meant for 10g tanks. Modifying these was not particularly easy and it looks pretty hacky when all said and done.

Yeah the I found the one I want to get online and I can get it in store. What worries me is that it’s top fin brand and I don’t know what to do if I need to get a different filter or something. No room with the lid to smack another one on so Im a little concerned. I am a beginner getting it for a beginner sooo… Heck I don’t know. Thoughts?

Heres the link if you want it Top Fin® Split Angle Waterfall Desktop Aquarium | fish Starter Kits | PetSmart.

It's definitely different. Certainly for someone but, I imagine experienced aquarists would find it impractical. Particularly the cleaning in that 45° angle.
