Any non-transparent dividers?

Hey everyone,
I'm wondering if its possible for there to be any tank dividers that don't allow the fish to see whats on the other side of the tank. I don't think I want my males to see each other.
Assuming they DO exist, anyone know where I can buy one that not too expensive?
Or how to make one?

Many thanks!

Helps to mention the size tank you're planning to divide.

You need the holes for water circulation I'm sure they have a material out there that's small enough were the bettas can't see through.

Search for the term "divider" in the forum. There's at least a couple dozen that discuss it in great detail.

I'm making this divider for my 10 gal. http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/d...ividers-21866/

It needs holes in it for water circulation.. But if you get darker colored craft mesh and use TWO pieces of craft mesh like I plan on doing, you should be fine. Also line up some nice big plants along the divider.

Oh, sorry. I was planning on dividing either my 5 gallon or a 10 gallon. I'm thinking the 5 gallon will be more likely my choice.
Plants in addition to two pieces of mesh sounds like a great idea.
Awesome, I'm definitely looking more into this.

One thing I can recommend is a moss wall. If you're into live plants you can attach some java moss to the divider and have it grow along it, looks awesome and still allows water movement.
