Split Tank Finished

Well it's been finished for a while, just my digital camera was being a poop head.
Anyways, I recieved a 50G aquarium a bit ago and decided it would make a great split tank for intro's, and maybe later on keeping solo gerbils.
It's worked out great, totally comes apart for cleaning, and so i can use the entire tank space in needed sicne it breaks down. It's made of steal and super strong.

Right now I have Chevy & his 1 year old Son split in it (for the past month) in hopes to bond them. Anyways, here are the pictures....



here you can see the chanelling that holds the divider in place with the lid...

And it's about ready for a cleaning :p messy messy boys.

Not by myself!
You need 2 people and it nees to be empty, it's SO heavy!
I have a 45G that's going to be built into a split also, i can pick it up, though I doubt i'll be able to dump it like the 10 & 20 gallon tanks, it's going to be a dust pan cleaner also.
I believe i could sit on top of this tank it's pretty solid.

You did a really good job w/that. I am so happy I read this post, that dish shelf you use is a really good idea!! My boyfriend is thinking of buying some for us, but I think I will get one too for my gerbils, because I have been using boxes for them to reach there water bottle and they are constantly chewing them down, I will still give them cardboard of course though. That is a really good example of a split cage.
