plastic devider.

hi all.
i've sort of decided on a look that i would like for when i set up
the tank again.
I would like sand and gravel,now i would like to keep them seperate,
so i need a devider,is it ok to use some perspex plastic,
is there any sort of materials that i shouldn't use.
many thanks in advance for thoughts and suggestions. :)

I would imagine that perspex plastic would be absolutely fine so long as there are no sharp edges. Are you going to silicone it in place?

It depends on the size, and how heavy it is. If you want to maintain a clean line between the sand and the gravel then I would recommend securing it in case it gets disturbed by the fish, or during water changes :)

this tank being down is utter torment i tell ya,i've decorated it
over and over in my head so many times,and as i'm not allowed to
move around much for a couple of days,i'm sat on the comp
looking at fish tanks and how they're decorated. lol

LOL - all those choices! I know what you mean though, last time I set a tank up I spent forever looking at planted tanks online for inspiration, and couldn't make up my mind :P
