How to divide glass tank?

If my sorority doesn't work out, I will be able to keep three of the girls and divide my 10 gal. My questions..

What I a material I can use to divide it that doesn't require me to have multiple heaters/filters? If it is see through, will the bettas get upset seeing each other?

Is this material something that can be just put in place, do I need to clip it somehow?? Thanks

I'd use regular clear sheets of plastic with hole punches using the vertical kind so its a minimal barrier but still works then aquarium glue to hold in place or custom holders.

The DIY ones work fine in glass tanks. They might slip around if you have a barebottom, but gravel usually stabilizes them fairly well.

Many folks around here use craft-mesh dividers with report binders for support.

HEY! Where's the divider tutorial sticky?

If you make them carefully, they'll stay in place by themselves. They work fine for my double divided tank.

Putting the filter and heater in the middle bay will heat/filter evenly enough.

But I hope your sorority works out. That's the best.
