Ten Gallon Tank Divider!!

Hey there guys, Just wondering what everyone else uses to divide tanks? I've heard of the mesh canvas some people say to use but I just can't figure how I could do that. Any other d.i.y. ways to make dividers for a tank of ten gallons? I just purchased one today. I'd like to get my fish into it as soon as possible. But until I have a divider I am not going to move them.

Any tips? Thanks for the consideration and time to read this!

This is what I used as my divider. I don't even use aquarium sealant like they say to do in the instructions. I've been using this method for months and have never had a problem with it

Its called a plastic canvas.
Here is the exact one I bought: http://www.joann.com/darice-stiff-pl...prd_01971233a/
they have it at Walmart/Target too, if you don't have a craft store near you(or you just prefer to go to walmart/Target). You get like 6 for 2 bucks and its in the crafts aisle.
oh and BTW, when I made mine, I used 3 instead of just one, so it can be sturdier and so I could ensure they couldn't see each other, but its completely up to you how many you use

I recently divided a 10 gallon. I did it with a smaller third section for filter and heater. And here's the thread about it:

I also have the water down a little bit, so my jumper won't try to explore what's on the other side of the blue wall....lol!
