The 5.5 gallon tank divider is perfect for housing two Betta fish on a temporary basis or if you need to separate fish for a short period of time. We do not recommend it for their permanent home. They're easy to install and maintain. They will come with a full instruction sheet and there is also a video on the website on how to install them. They are made from a solid material and are very sturdy. The divider is black and has been designed with holes throughout it so Betta fish can rarely see each other making for a stress free environment. They also come with the option to have no holes. The divider works best in a tank with substrate and may not be suitable for bare bottom tanks. If you do not have a tight fitting lid you may need to lower the water level.
Please check tank size before buying.

Which Divider is Best For You?
With holes: A divider with holes helps with water flow especially if you are only going to use one filter in the tank. However we do recommend using an airstone in the side that has no filter to promote some water movement. The bettas can also periodically see each other which will promote enrichment and occasional flaring.
Without Holes: A divider with no holes provides a very peaceful environment. The bettas will still occasionally see each other but not as often as with the divider with holes. This will also provide enrichment for the Betta. This divider does require filtration on both sides. We recommend sponge filters as the flow can be adjusted to the bettas requirements.
Things to note before buying.
These dividers are not flimsy like mesh dividers and you may find you require filtration in each section to help with water flow.
Do not force the divider into a tank as we will not be held responsible for any damage to the aquarium.
