Tank Divider

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make a divider for a 22L tank. I'd like to divide it to house two female bettas sharing the water and heater etc. Idealy I want to make it removable.Maybe held in place with suction cups? Alternatively is this tank too small for three females ?

Females can be kept together. But if you really want to I have (tonight) divided my tank into 3 with A4 plastic pockets with cardboard in them. They bend to fit your tank. I just tape the open end and staple it and keep that end above water line. Simple yet effective!

I think that's a smart and creative idea!! It's good budget wise until you find yourself a new suitable tank (or pretty dividers) for whatever trouble you were having. :o

Thanks for the help Callatya, I got the plastic canvas at a local craft store, what great stuff for dividers. I used the poster hangers too and located the whole thing with suction cups from lfs and cable ties. The bottom of course is held in place by the gravel. Works a treat :) . Thanks again.

It *should* be fine providing its all wedged in nicely. Without gravel I have had one wiggle though the side down the bottom (took some serious skill,still not sure how he managed!), but never had problems once the gravel was in. maybe do a bit of desensitising first so they don't go all out to squish through to each other. Pop one or both in a floating holding jar so they get used to the sight of each other :no:

They're in glass barracks next to each other atm. so they can already see each other. I'll put them in a divided tank, that way they'll have more room to move around. Cool idea as this way I only need to run one heater and filter and both boys will be happy chappies. :)
