my local walmart stopped selling the mesh. >.>; so, it may be hard to find there. any crafting store will have it, though, and in different colors. i planned on doing it like...
|space|
that^ with an inch or so between the mesh, so it's harder to see.

The plastic folder is to cover up the holes in the mesh. Otherwise they will still be able to see each other a bit.

Whoah, I am confused now. How does that even work? How does the water get through?

I leave a little space without the plastic folder on one side, and then cover that area with plants. That way the water can flow through, and they still can't see each other.

I was just stating my opinion on it. If they get along, then there is no reason to change it. I was just stating some concerns.

I have housed fish in that situation and have had absolutely no issues with it. Fish always were happy, healthy, and not stressed in the least.

Different things work for different people, but that is just my experience. :)

Good luck and as long as the view is blocked there is not issue with it IMO.

That would be AMAZING! I seriously think this is an awesome idea. The mess would make the moss grow all around it and through it, like those moss carpet things. I think a betta would love something like that.
