Pics of ONE of my divided 10 gallons. XD
This one houses Uther (right) and Frost (left). Uther is a giant HMPK and Frost is a HMPK.
Tank is kept in a heated room to remain at 78-79 F.

Updated my tank filter and divider. I started using a powerhead on my 20 gallon long. I combined the sponge filters and ran them through the divider. I found it actually made the divider a lot more stable and secure in the tank. I'm downgrading the boys to a 10 gallon divided though. I have plans to make a high tech NPT Gourami tank out of the 20 long. But for now this is it...

That's great, Mike. Using your Hydro as an induction/intake filter is brilliant. And filtering out of both sides. Hides well, too.

Do I see two heaters in there?

That looks AWESOME! I may just do that for my boys in my soon to be divided 6 gallon.

I'm so glad to see this thread, since I'm already planning Lucky's upgrade and I want to divide a 10 gallon tank so I can have a second betta. Is there anything I need to know about picking up aquarium sealant? When I read how to make your own dividers, they mentioned using that to glue them in place. I'm looking at Marineland Silicone aquarium sealant.

I also like the double divider idea, since I won't have to worry so much about whether or not the current is too strong when I get a filter for a 10 gallon tank. For a sponge filter, is the 10 gallon setup going to be enough? It's the Elite single sponge filter with the Tetra 10 gallon air pump.

Thanks!

A top quality silicon sealant by GE or Dow is safe in your tank, and a lot less expensive than from the fishstore.

@Freemike
Do you know the trick with the credit card for hiding the line between the substrate layers?
