    Hi all! I have a tall 40 gallon tank with platies and guppies. I need a tank divider to separate fry from adults or males from females (depending on whether I want babies or not) Unfortunately I cant seem to find one that fits my tank... any suggestions? I’ve been considering making my own with a piece of acrylic and pool noodles (noodles to create a secure barrier and prevent scratches to the inside of my tank)

    You can do that, but there’s no need for the pool noodles. ;)

    Thanks! The piece of acrylic I have is like 1/2 inch too short to touch both walls of the tank so I was thinking noodles would hold it in place and fill that extra 1/2”!

    Oh, gotcha! I recommend trying to find sort of a darker color of noodle. You don’t want to have a great looking tank with bright orange noodles right in the center of it! ;)
