Dividing a shrimp tank
« on: December 30, 2011, 08:37:46 AM »
Has anyone been able to come up with a fail safe way to divide a shrimp tank that keeps one species from climbing over and associating with another?  DIY or purchase; I'm not choosy.

There's really no fail safe way, I always did separate tanks.
I think I need a bigger tank.....

Check with ohbaby714 under freshwater invertebrates section. Has a pic of shrimp tank with divider and does use
one for selective breeding.

I use this one.

Work pretty good but time to time, if the water level high a few some how hop over:-)

Thanks.  I have this same divider on a fish tank and, because of the clips that loop over the top of the tank, my lid does not close.  On my shrimp tank I have to plug around the small opening where my filter tubing exits, to keep the little buggars from escaping.  Have you discovered a lid that closes with this divider, or is the fact that you lower your water level what prevents them from jumping out?
