Question Tank dividers?

Hey guys, I want to make my awesome goodwill bargain tank into a shared tank with two of my crowns. My question is how do those divider things work? Will the tank need two filters/heaters? Or does it cycle through the divider? I've never actually seen one.... so I am lost. Thanks guys!!

Thanks doggyhog! Awesome tanks.... are they 10 or 20g? And also, does it flip the fish out to be able to see each other constantly??

Usually you use something like mesh so that the water flows through. Your guys will most likely flare for a while but settle down eventually as they get used to each other. You can also block their sight with a plant or something.

my 30 gallon is divided with 3 crowntails and plexiglass in between them with holes i drilled. they see each other clearly and occasionally flare but they also have plants and driftwood to swim around to find a little solitude.
they seem very happy.

They are 10g.

Nope, I find that my fish actually LIKE seeing another fish. Not sure why. LOL They always have something to do that way. :)
