illudicrous eclipse minimum is 2.5 for a betta and a 10g split into three quadrants is 3.3 gallons in each space which is good

Update September 2016. Sadly, my bettas have all passed on at this point although I feel like they lived a pretty good life in this set up. I still have the tanks and the dividers are still holding, but the tanks now house endlers and shrimp. The silicone I used did not hold on all the dividers. If I were to do this again, I would pass on the silicone sealant and just cut the mesh a little bit bigger than the tank, then use the tension created by the extra length to hold the divider in place. I did this on one divider and it's held strong.

+SpacebugHow much of wattage LED lights should I use for my 15 gallon divided
Betta tank? I currently use 5 watt LED but it's really not sufficient
enough.

Hi Spacebug, I have a Betta in a 10 gallon already. Do I have to drain the water out to do this? Thanks!!
Spacebug
Spacebug - 4 years ago
That's a good way to do it. Glad to hear your bettas are doing well.

I did it without draining it. Just made it a little bigger to fit snug. Now have two bettas, they are doing just fine.
Spacebug

If you are going to use silicone to adhere the mesh to the sides, you will have to drain and dry the tank first. If you cut the mesh a little longer than the width of your tank and let it hold in place with the tension, then you might be able to insert it with the water still in it, but I haven't attempted that.

I have the exact same setup, except for the live plants! I have the filter in the middle section though and I can see a layer of film on the outer side sections :( I also had to do 2 layers of mesh. Maybe I need some plants?!

Do you position the mesh so they cover each other?
Spacebug
Spacebug - 4 years ago
I try to have the mesh overlap in such a way that the bettas can't really see through it as well, but it is not completely covered.

Hello, I currently have all my bettas in a 1 gallon tank each but I was planning on getting another 10 gallon and dividing it like you did. Would it be ok to divide it, into 4 different section, or is it too much and it would be better for 3 sections like you did?

You could, although i reccon 3 would be best for a 10 gallon as with 4 there would be little width to swim. Although that is my opinion and you can do either.

I have same 10 gallon divided tank and have filter all the way at the end side.
I have a acrylic divider from aliexpress. But do you think the water on the other side will get clean by filter?
I am setting really low so my betta doesnt get any stress.. but I am afraid that the filter wont clean at the end part
because its set to low..

thank you for your help. it has holes in it:) and I planted a lots of plants too. so I am glad that plants are also a natural filter. ! Thank you! 
Spacebug
Spacebug - 4 years ago
+Heey J It's hard to know if the whole tank is being filtered appropriately. I test the water periodically. The plants are also a natural filter, and the fish seem unstressed. My divider is mesh, so the water can flow through. If your acrylic is solid or close to it, there may not be enough filtration.

+Prickles the Hedgehog I can't remember right off the top of my head, but it's the basic kit you can buy at Walmart. If I were to do it again, I'd upgrade to a better lid with fluorescent lights.

hi do you find the filter enough to filter to the far tank? or did u have to add a sponge filter or gravel filter?
Spacebug
Spacebug - 5 years ago
+Christine Griffiths I test my water periodically and it is always fine and the water is clear, so the one filter seems to be sufficient. The plants are also natural filter. Some planted tank enthusiasts don't use filters at all on smaller tanks.

Very nice tank mam will be doing this is it possible to have this type of planted tank without dirt substrate just gravel?

how do you clean it?
Spacebug
Spacebug - 5 years ago
I do a water change about every week, and remove any algae that's grown by hand.  It's a natural planted tank, meaning it's got a dirt substrate covered with sand on top.  I don't vacuum this.  The fish waste feeds the plants, the plants clean the water for the fish.  I also have snails that help with clean up.

Your tank is incredible! I've been thinking about trying something similar in the future but still want to hold off until I get enough information / supplies. I was wondering if there were specific plants you would suggest for someone just starting off on a planted tank for bettas? Or does it matter?
Spacebug
Spacebug - 5 years ago
Your plant choices will depend on your lighting.  For typical lighting that comes with your tanks, keep to low-light plants like anubias and java ferns.  These tanks have CFLs in them that provide 2-3 watts per gallon.  I keep ludwigia, sagittaria, elodea, and golden creeping jenny in this one.  You can also try jungle vals, amazon swords,  and pennywort. Good luck!

Is there a non permanent way to do this? You wouldn't be able to remove the silicone would you?
Kate Cofflin
Kate Cofflin - 4 years ago
I have a similar setup with the mesh and report bindings. Instead of silicone, I hold the dividers in place with suction cups. That way it's less permanent, and any adjustments can be made easily.

Ok, thanks. I will try that.
Spacebug

Truthfully, if I were to do this over again, I wouldn't use silicone at all.   Just cut the mesh pieces slightly longer than the tank...maybe half an inch...and let the tension from the extra length and the substrate support the divider.  Over time, my silicone has broken down and become detached and this is how I've fixed the problem.  It's actually working much better than the original silicone.

Spacebug
Spacebug - 6 years ago
I use two layers of mesh to reduce them seeing each other.  Since I added the second layer, there's been no flaring and they don't seem to realize the other fish is there.

Do u you an algae problem wit all the plants in there..
Spacebug
Spacebug - 6 years ago
Yes!  I remove about a golf ball size of algae each week!  I have other planted tanks, though, that do not have this problem, so I don't blame the plants.  I believe my lighting in these tanks is off somehow.

+Christine Clifton i have a similar set up and i purchased some similar to these. I also bought a plastic folder and cut it to size  along the mesh because mine would flare up as well.
