Dividing a 10 gallon?

I currently have a female betta in a 10 gallon tank. I am doing a fish in cycle. Once my tank is cycled, I want to divide it.

1. Why all do I need to make a divider using craft mesh? I heard something about some binder things and do I use aquarium glue??

2. Would it be okay if I removed the water in my tank, dried the tank, placed the divider, then filled the tank back up with the water I removed? (I don't want to disturb the cycle) also, how long after gluing can I add the water?

Make sure it says aquarium safe. Lowes has clear SI gel that specific say aquarium safe.

I did my divider and wait 3 days, then soak in water for 3 days with filter. Then I put my fish it they still got sick. It took me 2 weeks to help 3 bettas recover.

I took my betta out and keep the tank outside for two weeks then resoak water again for 2 weeks. This time my fish ok.

Below is my Sorority tank with 3 divider (white bar). There are 8 female in there. It is ugly but very strong. The fish has been in there for 2 weeks now. They seem fine and active.

The longer the wait the better. I learned this hard way.
