Yep, you cant use silicone though.. if you want to attach it to the side of the tank you can use suction cups designed for airline tubing. petco sells them in a 6 pack for $4.50.

I'm doing a binder and mesh divider. But I'm making two.

There are these report binders that some stores sell, and I'm going to put them against the tank. Then I'm buying plastic mesh to slide into the binder and the pressure will keep it up.

I'm making two because the filter will be in a section in the middle, and also it reduces the chance of my boys attacking each other.

That sounds like a good idea you think a 5 gallon is to small to divide I would really like to pick a betta up from Walmart they look so sad in there

5 gallons is okay to divide but personally I wouldn't want to use 2 dividers in there for that size, I believe every betta should have 2.5 gal or more. What I did for my 10 gal tank is I took an extra piece of craft mesh and used plastic paper clips to attach it to the top of my divider. I cut it so that with my hood on, there's no space the bettas can jump over above the divider.
Sorry if that sounds confusing. If you want me to show a picture, I will just let me know:)

My bettaa are going to have 2+ gallons to swim in. The divided space will only be the width of the filter, which is small :)
