Cross-stitch mesh from craft stores is what I use. Then I simply enclose all four sides in plastic poster hangers and if using substrate, build it up on either side of the divider to hold it in place.

I find with the very fine cross-stitch mesh bettas can't see each other as well so this cuts down on stress.

This is not a betta tank, but shows how I divide my tanks when I need to. Dividers are a bit crooked because the lid is pushing down on them, but ignore that haha fish are non-aggressive in there.

I had that problem too....What I've done when I had problems with that is I took some wire cutter type things and just clipped out the section that I needed. And so there wasn't a gaping hole in the back, you can cover it with extra craft mesh.

I was thinking more about it today and looking at the mesh at the store. Friday I'll get what I need and make my divider =) So maybe a mesh top and fix some sort of light up?

If you divide remember plenty of hiding spots.
