New 5 gal tank - dividing?

I found a brand new 5 gallon aquarium for 12.50 on e-bay, That is a good deal. But, I want to divide it. Can I buy a divider, and then cut it to the right shape or something? Or are their other options?? (Its to small to put a vase in)

Hello!
I used this divider:

to divide my 5.5 gallon for my two girls. I think it works pretty good. It was a little difficult to cut into the right size, but it is doable. Only downside is it can leave a VERY small gap between the divider in the tank. The gap in mine is so small the fish can't see through it, never mind squeeze through it.
