I haven't really seen anything like that that want under 5 gallons. The only one I can think of is the 2.5 gallon bow front betta tank, and for two fish it isn't much better than a bowl. Doing your own divider is really easy, there is a way to do it with the craft mesh I mentioned and some of the little plastic things you use to hold report covers together. You can add a little silicone to it to make it more stable. I didn't have the report cover things so I made things a bit more difficult for myself, haha.

And I shared them on the other betta thread already, but here is a new picture of Ninja and the new plants in his tank!

He truly is gorgeous!

Here are a couple videos and a pic of Attila (formerly named Ajax). He suits the name Attila more. Cranky bugger he is! lol

You can see the little buddy I drew for him in the picture. I know, don't quit my day job.

Villapoto had a close call tonight. That little bastard flipped out of my hand and down into the garbage disposal! My hand was barely able to make the squeeze through and grab a fin tight for retrieval. He's lucky, and I'm relieved.

I was just cleaning his home pwc that currently is a brita water filter pitcher.
