Divider Hole Size?

Hey guys! I'm planning on dividing a 12 gallon long tank and I'm stressing myself over the hole size. How big should I have the holes in the divider be? I was thinking maybe around 3/8" (1cm) or 1/2"? What do you think?

The holes are for water circulation. Just using craft plastic mesh is fine for dividers, the holes arent too big and allow for water flow.

I have been making my own dividers out of 1/4 in plexi. The first one I drilled 3/8 holes but the smaller bettas swim thru them. OK for full grown adults. The newer ones I have just been cutting slits about 3/4 to an inch on center with the skill saw and it works fine.
