How do you guys get your dividers to stay?

I made a divider for my 5.5 gallon and because it has a lip on it I made it fit pretty snug so I don't think it would topple over but I want to be sure so I was wondering what you guys use? I don't really have a lot of $$ to go out and buy stuff but I do have some craft things laying around like a glue gun, would glue from a glue gun be safe in my aquarium?

Lots of people use glue guns for decorations and such. I wouldn't advise it to adhere anything really important.

Next time you're out, grab a tube of aquarium sealant. Just make sure you follow the instructinos on the tube regardless of what you use.

You can also use silicone. If you purchase the proper one. That you can purchase at a hardware store. Don't use anything that is made for kitchen or bath, they contain anti-molding chemicals that are harmful.
The brand I use is GE I. Read the labels as well...there are a few that specify 'use in aquariums'. It's a lot cheaper than actual aquarium sealant from the fish store.
