It's kind of hard to tell in these pics, but here are two of my tanks.
This is my ten gallon divided three ways.

This is the best pic I could find showing an acrylic wall. The downfall is you have to drill enough slots or holes to have a decent flow of water.

Secuono,

I would secure the dividers. I have read a few horror stories of betta's getting out of their sections to attack their neighbors. I can't tell from the pics, where is your filter placed?

In my last pic, first left section has a heater and little filter. On the right, 2nd section, is another heater and much larger HOB filter. That white thing mid way down is the intake.

I have had Betta go over and munch on their neighbors. Lemon attacks Flame & Kyle Jr. got beat up by is next door buddy who has since passed away. All have healed long ago. But the only way for them to get through now is if I change out water and not watch the dividers or if the fish grew 20x in size.

I have not silicon-ed them in place because I do not know if I will have to move my last male also. I would rather not, since this would make the sections quite narrow.

This is the dilemma I am facing with my 50 gallon. It is pretty deep, almost 18 inches, if I divide it into seven or eight sections, they will still have over 6.5 gallons of water. It's just that the viewing space will only be 6-7 inches.

Exclamation

Gallons-size in Inches-empty weight-full weight
10 Leader- 20 1/4 x10 1/2 x12 9/16 - 11 - 111
10 Long - 24 1/4 x 8 1/2 x12 5/8 - 16 - 116
10 Gallon -24 1/4 x12 1/2 x12 3/4- 21- 170
____________________

50 gallon is 36 7/8 x19 x19 5/8Inches. If you divide this tank into 8 sections, you will only have
4.5IN.
36IN long divided into 8 sections would make each only 4.5IN wide!
