Splitting a tank

So I have some of that yarn mesh stuff and once I get my 10 gallon I'm going to want to split it using it. But I'm not sure exactly how to do it. Does anyone know where I could find instructions or maybe someone can give me advice on how to keep the mesh from falling away and stuff?

Thanks :)

what you do is get plastic report binders like this...


then you slide them on all four sides of the mesh then get aquarium grade silicone and glue them in.

The link that picture is on is from another forum with DIY instructions on how to build it.. I'm not sure if we're allowed to link to other forums here so PM me if you want the link :)

that link doesn't advise to glue it but I HIGHLY advise you get the silicon. Unless you put two pieces of the mesh together in the divider it is very easy for the dividers to get knocked over.
