In this article we will discuss about Home Made Aquarium Partition or Aquarium Divider.
We all will be having aquariums, some have big and some have small aquariums. The main issue we all face is space for a new aquarium if we purchase new set of fishes or space for keeping the new fries or separating some aggressive fishes like flowerhorn, fighter fish etc.
Here we will discuss how to do aquarium partition or Aquarium divider. We can do the partition by using aquarium glass as well as partition mesh.
We will discuss about drawbacks of aquarium glass partition first
- While doing the partition we will have to take extreme care. Chances if wear and tear.
- When we are giving aeration to the tank ,aeration will not be available to the second tank

Benefits of mesh aquarium Partition or aquarium divider

Ok lets start how to do this.
First we will have to arrange 1 inch or 2 inch width glass piece or acrylic piece(height should be same as that of aquarium). Purchase mesh partition from near by hardware shops or you can use mosquito nets having bigger holes (thickness should be there). It should be the width of your aquarium. Next we will have to purchase aquarium glass divider clips. This you can purchase form amazon. Click here to purchase from amazon. A little glue is also required to stick the mesh to glass or acrylic piece.
First we will have to stick the mesh to the 2 nos glass or acrylic piece . While sticking do not cover the entire area of the glass piece . Otherwise it will be difficult to fix glass divider clip in it. Now keep it for some time to get set. After it is properly stick take the partition clip and fix it in both sides of the glass or acrylic sheet. Now place the set entirely in to the aquarium. As the clip is having a sticking sucker cup in it so it will get tight and stronger.
