Question Making A Divider

I cannot seem to find that plastic grate stuff many people use as a divider, and I've looked at the hobby stores and walmarts. Any suggestions of what I can use that's good, that can be found locally at like a Walmart or somewhere similar? I live out in the boonies, and there's not many stores for at least an hour drive or more, and I've already checked most of those anyways. Also, what can I use that's quick and easy to secure the divider in place? Other than silicone, which is too messy and permanent.

I'm dividing a 10 gallon tank for my two new rescues, Tuna and Taco, so they'll each have 5 gallons. I've considered just grabbing another 10 gallon tank and supplies, so they'll each have 10 gallons, but I may just do that in the future.

So, divider idea's?

Really? You REALLY couldn't find the plastic mesh (AKA plastic grate stuff apparently, haha) at Walmart? I find huge packs there! That's too strange. They really should be in the hobby-stores as well, I've never seen a store without one ... Not sure what to say, then...

I've heard of people using a hot glue gun, but you'd definitely want to either wait, or look that up, before doing it.

I can look again... maybe I was looking in the wrong section? To be honest, I really had no idea what I was looking for... what is that grate stuff actually called? I just browsed the hooby section looking for something that looked like it, but didn't see it.

Ask for "plastic mesh." That should get your started somewhere.

I believe the Fabric section at wal-mart is where you will find this. ALot of wal-marts are getting rid of their Fabric section, so you can also find this in the Wedding section / craft. It tends to be toward the back corners in most Wal Marts.

Really?? Wow... I must've been really looking in the wrong spot. I was in the like... fabrics area, where they pre-cut fabrics for you, and where like fake plants and decorative vases, ect. are. I must've been in the wrong area. I'll head back there in the next day or two and look again.

There's a Michael's in the city, if I can't find it at Walmart when I go back, I'll look at Michael's.
