Making a take divider.......

So petco ran out of 10 gallon tank dividers.... so i went to Walmart today to make my own, But they did not have the things you put on the side of the plastic mesh to keep it straight. Can anyone tell me where i can purchase these and what they are called.

Right now i just have the plastic mesh in my tank in a Obtuse "u" shape it keeps them separated but It isn't necessarily eye appealing.

You could probably try the plastic weatherstripping (I don't think that they have any components that would affect the water quality, but I'm not 100% sure). You could try Lowe's or Home Depot and go to the door area (at the stores I go to, they are in the far back corner) and ask one of the people in that area. They should know best since they sell the mesh screening back there, and I would assume they would have something to hold it together.
I'd go to Lowe's first: I've always been able to get in and out super quick without having to wait forever for someone to help me.
