I just cut a Five Star brand folder in half and slipped one side between the two pieces of craft mesh. Sorry, I didn't use hooks and side pieces, so I don't know what to tell you.

Ok I could figure it out easily with the hooks by myself. What is the point of the folder if you have the double layer of mesh already? Sorry I am being annoying.

The folder is because even with the double layer of mesh, they can still see each other. The POINT of the double layer of mesh is so you HAVE a place to slip the folder in.

No, I bought a black one. It's a folder that you'd use for school, and they come in many colors.

Blackberry - I just set up a divided 10 gallon tank for 2 male bettas over the weekend. They were both flaring through the commercial divider so I went to Jo Anne's and and bought green plastic carding fabric for doing counted cross stitch and propped it up on the carding side with suction cups. The carding fabric cost 95 cents. Then they could only see each other if they pressed their little noses to the divider, which they did but less often. I was worried about the double tail half moon stessing out his fins, so I bought filter floss and stuffed it between the two layers. Now they really cannot see each other, and I put a little box filter on each side for circulation.

Thanks, but I was wondering, I have some old screen from when we redid our screen door. It has been sitting in our basement for a long time. Do you think I could use that instead of the mesh if I cleaned it in bleach and made sure no sharp parts are near the fish?
