Divided tank materials

Recommended Posts

Hi

I want to DIY a divided tank for bettas, and I've been looking online for advice. Only problem is the majority of tutorials/videos/posts are from US/UK and I can't seem to find the materials needed in australia. I'd like something more solid and I saw a video where a lady used Sintra PVC- anyone know the Australian equivalent and where to get it?

If I can't get that I'd settle for the mesh/report binder method but I can't find black plastic canvas/mesh anywhere (only clear or white). Any help?

Thanks!

Have a look and see if these they might be a viable replacement for what you can't get here, or you can check out the sponsors here and you'll get 10% discount for being a member of QLDAF.

Thanks guys

I'd love to do something like perspex with holes drilled but I don't think I have the skills.

That corflute stuff might work. Looks like the stuff that companies use for signs. I think I'll just walk through bunnings touching everything until I find the right strength haha.

I am also worried about chemicals leaching into the water though. So much to consider!

perspex is easy as to use, put small patches on masking tape where you want to drill and go in with a straight hand, it will cut easy ;)

Yep ^^ Perspex is easy to work with,

won't crack when drilled and is easily bent with a bit of heat...
