i was just going to get a thin sheet of black plastic and cut them to size.

i was thinking of using them in the substrate to help keep my DHG and HC seperated. I know that it near impossible to do so, but theses MAY slow it down a bit. Making it more managable.

My only concern is it dislodging and floating up.....

but i am going to try it anyway

I use clear pieces of lexan plastic that I cut up from the package something came in.

That's what I use the dividers and you are correct, it will slow it down, but some shoots will find their way around or over it.

I just did this to keep sand and gravel separate. I used a small piece of plexiglass from Home Depot, cut it to size, superglue to attach to the bottom of the tank and then silicone to keep them in place.

That's EXACTLY what I want to do as well. Although thinking about it now, I might just scrap the DHG and decide to just do HC.
