Need help with tank deviders

Hi,

I have a 5 gallon tank and I am going to make a betta condo. Can someone tell me how to make tank deviders?

Sorry if there is spelling and grammer mistakes above. I am not good with either.
If you have fish or plants you need to get rid of pm me I am always looking for more.

Option A - Buy a tank divider at your local store Top Fin&#0174 Tank Dividers - Fish Care - Fish - PetSmart
Option B- Get a piece of acrylic, drills holes in it, and silicon it in the middle of a dry aquarium

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

Thanks anyone else.

I have though of a plan:

Lay 1/2 inch peice of acylic on bottom cut 1/4 of an inch deep by 1/2 wide knob and stick another peice in. Feedback anyone?

I get what you mean, just make sure it has holes for water circulation

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

Not sure if i read it on this forum or another but someone posted that they got some needlepoint boards/patterns at that Michaels craft store.
Thin, semi-rigid,perforated,easy to cut.
Cut slightly oversize and a couple dabs of silicone to keep it in place

Guess it does help to have a betta person around, lol.
Tank Dividers @ petfish.net
The first one is probably the easiest and nicest looking one. I wouldn't do the second one in a 5g, it's just too small.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
