We divided a tank temporarily to separate a male and female Common Musk. A thick piece of Perspex with holes drilled through it so that overnight they could share the filter. It was fixed at the top and also had large stones either side. Next morning it had been pushed out of the way and they were both in the same end of the tank.

We have also had a female snag a nail, which is short, in a cable tie - so even though all appears well, be warned.

Oh, thanks for the warning! Thinking about it, I had to wedge a fairly large stone into the corner of the tank to stop them shifting the filter inlet around, so I guess chicken wire wouldn't stand much chance!

Guess it's the bath for one of them then! The wife will just LURVE that

Sorry, got sidetracked with a new grandson and a trip abroad, so didn't get around to it.

I separated the two of them, but sadly Yurtle seemed to lose the will to live afterwards. He sat up out of the water, didn't show any interest when I put food in the tank, and died after a week or so

I will try and get a picture of Mack though. Thanks for the reminder.
