1. Yes the edges are BRIGHT blue! In this day and age you would think clear plastic would be available for this purpose.
2. I bought for the 10 gallon tank but the divider does not reach up to the top of the tank. You have to lower the water level or fish simply swim over the top. (The isolated one got out and two others got in!) Also you have to bury the bottom in the gravel to secure it, thus lowering it even more.
3. The two strips at the top and bottom are quite a bit shorter than in the illustration, making another area where fish can simply swim over the divider.
4. While the divider is wider than my tank it worked by my placing it catty corner, forming a triangular space, enough for a single fish.
5. And while the clips which hold the divider to the sides of the tank are effective, it means the cover of the tank no longer fits neatly into the groove
along the top but perches on top of the clip.
So - although this product works..sort of, it does not enhance the look of your tank.
The only thing I didn't like is how small the holes are on this divider, you have to make sure you have a filter on each side because this divider barely allows water, let alone any extra stuff. I had to put in my backup filter because after 1 week the side with no filter was filthy.
The clips that hold it in place are metal, and moving them around can scratch the plastic frame of the aquarium. They also interfere with my glass canopy, preventing it from shutting tightly, and leaving a gap that will cause more evaporation of my tank water. Using multiple suction cups on the sides would be a way better design than employing these metal clips.
Also, on the sides, the divider is just supposed to be jammed in with no suction cups or any way of ensuring a tight seal on either side. I secured mine as best I could with a pile of gravel on either side holding it in place, but I expect to lose some of my tiny black convict cichlid fry to big fish on the other side when they inevitably find gaps. I already had one small tiger barb wiggle through from the other side, and he faced an immediate beating from the protective father of the convict fry. Also, my banded leporinus jumped over the top, so you have to make sure divider is positioned high enough that it is above the water, or alternatively, that the canopy touches it when closed. Doable if you have a deep substrate layer in your 55 gallon, as there is just enough divider material to eliminate the risk of fish jumping over or sneaking under.
Anyway, if you want a divider for breeding purposes, this isn't a great one. If you just want to separate one nasty, big fish from the rest of the fish in your tank, it may work ok. Still, I could envision a big fish eventually knocking it loose if they get emboldened to keep ramming into it, as the material is so flimsy.
Height should be increased, it can always be trimmed.
Side brackets/supports should be made of a medium firmness rubber like material, something that could give a decent squeegee effect and stay against the sidewalls with no gap.
TBH, I'll take the divider, a few pieces of PVC and cut a channel down them the full length of the divider on the sides and top, press it down into the substrate and call it good. Possibly try to use a heat gun on it to see if i can get the divider to relax and not coil up. It may work, but its not a very complete product.
