Separating 'cage'

Where would I find like a separating 'cage'? There is something I want to keep in a tank, but only temporary and I want to keep it separate from the other fish.

I'm a college kid and have to leave my dorm for winter break and I have two guppies in my room that i want to take out and move to my 14g tank at home. But that tank has a betta in it that wouldn't get along with them. is there something i could put in the tank to keep them separated for like two weeks. If this is not recommended let me know please.

You could try to find a large breeding box or just get a divider.

We've actually kept a betta in a tank with guppies before and it was fine, but since the betta is established in the tank he may think of the guppies as invaders. It's also kind of like playing the lottery. I'd probably just get a divider.

A breeders box or breeders trap (some call it a breeder's net) would be your best bet, be sure that the one you pick has slits in it somewhere to allow water flow throughout it or your betta will be stuck in the same water in a small space for two weeks. Here is a nice box:
